Brief Wine Notes – Champagne Voirin-Jumel 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs NV

30 Oct

This 1er Cru (from plots in the Cote de Blancs village of Vertus) Champagne is made in a style that is at once both food and quaffing-friendly.  Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel with a nice light, bready, yeasty note and some chalky minerality.   Nose of green apple, white flowers, citrus, caramel, and almost a cinnamon spice note.  Palate continues with the apple and some stone fruit.  Fine and persistent mousse, long finish.
