Hugues Godme Reserve Champagne Premier Cru (375ml)
Why buy the Non Vintage Cuvees of the big Champagne houses when you can drink this Superb Grower Champagne for the same price.
The Reserve is a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier and 10% Pinot Noir. A creamy white mousse evaporates into a pale straw gold tinged base colour that has a very fine bead showing excellent persistence. Rich, bready yeast lees aromatics tinged with a hint of dried honey rise from the glass followed by oily toast like characters and faint hints of dried nuts. Rich and full with a creamy like texture, the mouth is filled with baked bread, oily toast like characters, citrus and yeast lees with an assortment of dried nuts on the long dry finish. Excellent fresh acidity with a lengthy aftertaste of baked bread, oily toast like characters, yeast lees, citrus and dried nuts. A fuller style with outstanding richness and complexity.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
