The 2016 Grand Bouquet Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut has a light yellow colour with delicate green reflections and a very fine perlage.
The ripe and juicy bouquet of the champagne enchants with its exquisite scents. The essence of ripe quince, vineyard peaches and oranges in both flesh and zest form blend beautifully with aromas of camomile, oyster shell and dry pastry.
The palate is caressed by a juicy, captivating and sparkling saltiness and fine carbonic acidity. The champagne seduces with its finesse and intensity, which is so strong that one feels immediately on a salty, mineral beach. Crystal clear, like clear glass, this champagne is a true revelation and an incredible food companion that offers excellent value for money.
Oysters, jazzed up with wedges of grapefruit, can be a great first alternative. As a second suggestion, lobster with champagne-butter sauce and a crusty baguette would be an excellent choice. Lastly, a tender poussin with peach, beautifully arranged with basmati rice and almonds, can provide an excellent finale.
This description guides you through the exquisite journey of wine enjoyment, which can be superbly enhanced with subtle but effective food pairings.
