Natalie's Score: 91/100

This classic, well-known Champagne is a traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. Lime zest, green apple and freshly baked bread aromas on the nose, with a terrific persistence of bubbles on the palate. Try the ultra-shabby chic combo here between French Champagne and a bucket of KFC chicken. Why wait for New Year’s or a wedding before you pop open bubbly when it’s so tasty? The bonus is that it’s just about the best partner for fried food on the planet: it’s mouth-watering acidity and bubbles wash away the fat, making you want more of course.

Champagne food pairings: potato chips, fried food, sushi, seafood, vegetarian dishes.

Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale gold with small persistent bubbles, displaying classic flavours of red delicious apple, cranberry, lemon, orange, oxydized apple, brioche, over stony mineralty.
The creamy texture and lively acidity linger on the palate.
Enjoy today with your shellfish, creamy, pungent cheese, or your favourite salty snacks like truffle-butter popcorn or kettle chips.
Date tasted: March 2014.
Sara M WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:

Pleasant aromas of toasted brioche and almonds reflect the true character of this elegant, luxurious Champagne, and notes of white pear and lemon combine with delicate mousse (bubbles) on the palate. Pairs extremely well with smoked salmon, clam linguine and double-cream brie, but I prefer to enjoy it unaccompanied by food. Excellent for all types of celebrations from lively gatherings to romantic evenings.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
