2012 Henriet-Bazin Marie-Amelie Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne
A 100% Chardonnay cuvee from the excellent 2012 vintage. A fine plentiful mousse sits comfortably over a pale straw base which is finely threaded by a generous stream of delicate bubbles. Very refined and yeasty the nose features elevated baked bread and citrus scents over dried honey, cashew and brioche notes. Elegant and long with vivid acidity leading into a chalk tinged finish the palate has a light airy feel. Well meshed flavours of yeast lees, citrus, oily baked bread, subtle honeyed cashew and brioche form a gently creamed texture. Finishes quite dry and crisp with plenty of finesse on the long yeasty aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
