Hugues Godme Extra Brut Champagne Premier Cru
The Extra Brut is a drier style with a dosage of 3.5g produced from 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier and 10% Pinot Noir. After 5 years on lees it was disgorged in January 2016. The frothy mousse shows good buoyancy revealing a pale gold straw colour and fine very persistent bead. Excellent aromatics, very similar to the Reserve with yeasty baked bread and oily toast like characters dominate over some cashew. Full, rich and toasty but very dry with a slight oiliness to the mouthfeel, the palate dishes up baked bread, yeast lees, citrus and toast flavours over some roasted almonds. Vibrant, dry chalky finish with a long baked bread, yeast lees, toast and almond aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years.
