Champagne A.C., France

Craig scored this wine: 99/100

An incredible taste experience. Brioche, honey and citrus notes and flavors with a wonderfully dry minerality on the palate. Consistent bubbles and a lemon tinged finish. If you only open one champagne this is the one for you.

Blueberry and black fruit on the nose and palate with some chocolate and oak on the palate. The wonderful blueberry flavor dominates throughout. The flavor carries through velvety soft tannins.
