2008 Le Clos des Demoiselles
The Ladies' Delight
We usually reserve imported wines for our International Selection Sundays. This week, however we just could not wait to share today’s spectacular 2008 Clos des Demoiselles with you.
Bright, balanced and vivid, this wine is a true delight to the senses. In the mouth, the soft mousse plumes to the far corners of the palate, driving flavors as it moves.
We managed to get our hands on every last case and, at today’s price, this wine may not last the day.
Pair with a seafood salad, tuna tartar or a sea bass, with brown butter and capers. Or, pair with your favorite friends or family during your upcoming festivities!
Pale straw yellow, this beautiful sparkler produces a steady stream of tiny bubbles that rise to the surface with energy and vigor. Ropey legs provide an indication of the extended cellar time that this lovely wine underwent.
Lively and sweet with aromas of golden delicious apple, grapefruit, brie, lemon thyme, and a soft and yeasty bread smell.
Yeasty, gently fruity and delicious, with baking apple, toast, honey butter, white melon, soft citrus and white peach.
A very long, rich finish, with honeydew melon, essence of grapefruit. The yeastiness seems to marry the fruit. Both of them gradually diminishing as the palate becomes softly dry.
