Champagne Vauversin Grand Cru Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Original NV, Oger 

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 06-Dec-2021
Bright, even, moderate yellow, youthful. Very fine, consistent effervescent. The nose is elegantly expressive and voluminous, aromas of brioche, whipped butter and marzipan underlying peach, nectarine and citrus peels. Medium-full bodied, aromas of peach, nectarine and preserved lemon shows purity, followed by integrated, balanced nuances of toasted brioche, creamy whipped butter and marzipan linger with a subtle hint of spice. The mouthfeel is almost unctuous, adorned by chalky minerals, and very smooth, creamy mousse fills the palate. The wine has lovely pure fruit and excellent intensity, providing a lasting, rich closing. This is charming and well-proportioned Blanc de Blancs with concentrated flavours and purity. Match with cheese souffle and butter-poached crayfish over the next 5-8+ years. 100% Chardonnay, assemblage in 2017, Nov 2020 disgorment, 5 g/l dosage, 12.5% alc. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $84.95
