Champagne Francois Chaumont Blanc de Blancs Millesimato 2016
The Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Millésime 2016 cuvée is an exceptional Champagne characterized by a Chardonnay of character and pure chalk enhancer.
The Champagne has a bright and fairly fluid color, a straw-yellow gold color with deep yellow-green reflections in the glass. It is animated by fine and lively bubbles that feed a persistent ruff. The visual sensation announces a rich and nuanced wine.
The nose is elegant and greedy, evoking notes of candied grapes, candied pear, almond, with aromas of acacia, mimosa, buttercup and hawthorn. The aeration of the Champagne reveals fresher notes of lemon, white peach, pineapple, with undertones of lime blossom, verbena, powdery chalk and fresh hazelnut.
The touch on the palate is soft and fresh with a creamy effervescence. Champagne develops a very pulpy fruity substance, supported by an integrated lemonade acidity. The middle palate is orchestrated by a chalky minerality that confers frankness, iodized salinity and length on the palate with the fruity resonance of the grape, testifying to the total vibration of the champagne in this exceptional vintage. Balanced, mineral and juicy, concentrated and airy finish.
