Maurice Vesselle ‘Cuvee Reservee’ Champagne Grand Cru Brut NV

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 13-Jun-2016
Full straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, a little lighter on the rim, with a very persistent and fine bead. The nose is fine, but firmly concentrated with intense yellow stonefruit aromas showing Pinot Noir prominence. The fruit is harmoniously melded with a complexing, savoury bready-yeasty layer, and subtle aldehyde nuances, and builds in depth, becoming rounder in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the yellow stonefruit flavours are rich and vibrant, and gently fill the mouth, while growing in depth and intensity. Layers of complex, savoury, bread and yeast unfold adding interest. The mouthfeel is very well-balanced with a soft mousse and lacy acidity lending energy, and a light phenolic structure. The wine leads to a long, lingering, elegant finish with yeasty notes. This is a well-balanced Champagne with rich and vibrant fruit and layers of complexing savoury yeast flavours. Serve as an aperitif, and with white meats and seafood over the next 3+ years. A blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, fermented without MLF to 12.0% alc., and 9 g/L dosage.
