Heidsieck & Co Monopole
Blue Top PREMIER Cru Brut Champagne
Mission: Sunday, May 12
Note: Today’s brilliant offering is the Premier Cru Champagne, in the solid yellow bottle. This wine is not to be confused with the less remarkable non-Premier version.
Celebrate your dear Mom with us, today, dear Operative. And do it in style. Today’s delightfully decadent Blue Top Premier Cru Brut Champagne hails from one of the oldest Champagne houses in France, Heidsieck & Co Monopole.
This delicious bubbly is beautifully balanced, riding that wonderful zone between elegant and energetic. Tiny bubbles race through the wine in a constant upward cascade. On the palate, the wine is almost creamy, with a delightful mousse that blossoms on the tongue.
If you allow this wine to warm a little before enjoying, you will be rewarded with a softer overall feel, and more lively fruit flavors.
Made from the three traditional Champagne grapes of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, today’s brilliant Premier Cru Champagne is very highly recommended. Especially at today’s price.
Medium golden hues catch the light. Right after pouring, the wine shows a very bold and energetic rush of bubbles. After letting the wine sit for a few moments, a light stream of fine bubbles continues.
Fresh brioche, green apple, fresh citrus and lemon curd lead the way. As the wine warms, slightly, it reveals more subtle aromas of hazelnut and yeast.
Green country apple, fresh brioche, pomello, and sweet lemon juice. As the wine warms, it becomes more dense and complex, adding flavors of toasted almond and brioche.
Lemon and pomello skin linger for a long time. At the tail end, yeasty brioche and subtle hazelnut complete the tasting experience.
Pair this flexible Champagne with a variety of foods, including gourmet mac & cheese with breadcrumbs or risotto with asparagus and butternut squash.
