Champagne Charles Hubert Grand Cru Brut Cuvée Prestige 2013, France

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 06-Dec-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a gold hue, even colour throughout. The bubbles are fine, slow and persistent. The nose is immediately full with rich aromas of toasted brioche, croissant, double cream, underlying preserved lemon, stonefruit and a hint of nut. Full-bodied, richness filled the palate, lemon sherbet, preserved lemon, dried pineapple and stonefruit have a vibrant and intense core, unfolding nougat, toasted brioche and pastry. Thanks to the bright acidity, the flavours are concentrated, rich yet vibrant; a light layer of chalky minerals contributes to elegance and the mouthfeel. The acid tension drives a long, lingering finish. This opulent Prestige Champagne shows vitality, vibrancy, and a satisfying, long, fresh finish. Match with kingfish and butter-poached scampi over the next 8 years. 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonnay. 19.5-/20 pts (97 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $89.95
