Champagne as you may or may not know is non vintage. That means they blend wine from a number of years to make the wine. Champagne can only come from the Champagne region of France (legally speaking). And Champagne is made from the Chardonnay grape. This wine was brought along as a part of our New Years celebration by my good friend Lori! She had had it for somewhere around 6 years. This wine is pale in color with a lovely mild nose of minerality. On the mid pallet the wine displays some lovely crisp minerality to match the nose. The bubbles are nice and fine and the sugar level is well under control. It is medium in length on the finish. This is a lovely dry crisp Champagne. I would give it a solid 90. Yumm. Thanks Lori!
