Mission Briefing

Codename:

Les petites bulles

Today’s high-scoring French Champagne is highly recommended… but very limited. We managed to get our hands on every last bottle that the supplier had on hand. At over 30% off, this wine will sell out.

Delicious, delicate and creamy on the palate, this perfectly-balanced sparkler is the sort that can be enjoyed as an aperitif but has the structure and complexity to hold its own through an entire meal.

Enjoy with a wide range of foods, including soft cheese, game birds, fish and chicken. We paired ours with baked soft cheese topped with chopped leaks and chanterelles and a wild mushroom risotto.

Tasting Profile

Look:

A pale coral hue with very fine effervescence. Bubbles are extraordinarily tight and fast-rising, setting the expectation of a Champagne of great style.

Smell:

Delicate aromas of orange zest, dried plum, and pink grapefruit rind, with a hint of wet limestone, a touch of minerality, and slightly underripe wild strawberry.

Taste:

Incredibly complex and captivating, with hints of cranberry, white peach, candied fruit, fresh rhubarb, and watermelon rind.

Finish:

Long, silky, smooth and delicate, with plush red fruits and a hint of crisp watermelon.

Pairing:
