Champagne Francois Chaumont Blanc de Noirs Brut
100% pinot noir and 100% Grand Cru from Puisieulx! The terroir of Puisieulx gives the wine its lightness, refinement and freshness; the Pinot Noir grape, with its pronounced character, brings structure and delicate aromas of red fruit.
The Champagne has a bright and fluid straw yellow color, with straw yellow reflections and a lively vapor of refined bubbles. It suggests both richness and freshness.
The first nose opens with notes of jam, green plum, wild strawberry, iodine, pineapple. When aerated, the Champagne evolves towards notes of licorice, wet chalk, orange blossom, pomelo, apricot, mango, blackberry, cranberry.
The approach to the palate is soft and fresh with a creamy and melted effervescence. Champagne develops a pulpy material and patina well supported by a fresh acidity reminiscent of those of orange and pomelo. The central mouth is orchestrated by chalky minerality that provides saltiness, frankness and an intense sensation of chalk dust on the tongue. The whole expresses a certain delicacy well balanced by a savory finish and exotic freshness.
