Clos de la Chapelle ‘Instinct’ Champagne Premier Cru Brut NV

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 13-May-2015
Bright straw-yellow with slight golden hues. The nose is full, rounded and voluminous with up-front yellow stonefruit aromas alongside bready, yeasty autolysis notes, revealing citrus fruit and aldehyde notes in the glass. Dry to taste, full and mouthfilling, open fruit flavours show with richness. The soft mousse and presentation is enhanced by gentle acidity. Though showing breadth and accessibility, this has a fine-texture underlying phenolic line. The fulsome palate carries through to a moderately long finish of stonefruits and bread. A pleasing all-round, flavoursome Champagne. 60% Pinot Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay, from the ‘Villedommange’1er cru, with 7-8 g/L dosage and aged 3 years. 17.5/20 May 2015 RRP $55.00
