Champagne Charles Hubert Grand Cru Brut Tradition NV, France

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 06-Dec-2021
Bright, pale straw yellow with some depth. The bubbles are fine and consistent. The nose is softly full and expressive, aromas of shortbread, cereal interweave baked apple, lemon rind and yeasty autolysis. Medium-full bodied, a broad palate filled with biscuit, cereal and baked apple with cinnamon, lemon and lemon peels and creamy lees. A hint of sweetness balances the acid tension and broaden the palate; subtle spices added interest. The baked apple and yeasty autolysis bring richness and comfort to a sustained finish. This is a rich flavoured Champagne with baked fruit and pastry details. Match with roasted chicken and shallot tarte tatin over the next 3-5 years. 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay. NV blend of 50% of reserve wines (2016 and 2017) and 50% of 2018, 12%, full MLF, minimum 24 months on lees. 18.5/20 (93 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $59.95
