    Named after the 11th Bishop of Reims, Saint-Nicaise is Bauchet’s flagship Champagne. A 100% Chardonnay blend sourced from Premier Cru vineyards in the Cote des Blancs (Grauves) and the Montagne de Reims (Bisseuil), it’s aged for a minimum of 5 years before disgorgement.
    Pours with a frothy white mousse that holds well over a pale straw, pale gold tinged base that has a fine persistent bead flowing through it. The nose presents a classic Champagne sniff with alluring scents of baked bread, yeast lees and toasty citrus like notes engulfing the senses. Brioche and subtle dried honey aromas ensue. Sculptured yet rich, citrus, yeast lees and baked bread characters form the core of the flavour profile which is underpinned by a spine of vivid acidity that lends tension to the long brisk finish. Adding complexity are notions of roasted almond, faint honeyed characters and a chalky oyster shell like salinity. Concludes long, crisp and chiselled.
    Drink over the next 4-5 years.
