Champagne Brut Vintage 2008
To elaborate a Grand Vintage, only grapes with the potential to produce wines with finesse and ability for long aging are selected. Only the first pressing (the cuvee) is selected. After bottling the Grand Vintage has been aged for 8 years in Boizel’s deep cellars before release. The robe shows a warm gold color with very fine persistent bubbles. The nose reveals a wonderful aromatic complexity and elegance. The Grand Vintage 2008 first expresses discreet notes of warm brioche and yellow peaches, then more intense aromas of dried fruits and honey. On the palate the wine is pure with a refined texture. The intensity of aromas is balanced by minerality and freshness. The finale is long and elegant.
Grape 50% Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs, 40% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and 10% Pinot Meunier
