Champagne Colin "Parenthese" Extra Brut 2009
This cuvee is made from Chardonnay grapes - very rich in 2009 - and balanced by the blend of Pinot Noir. Its name (“Interlude”) reflects the moment of savouring it as well as the limited quantity of this cuvee.
• Eye: golden yellow robe with glinting highlights.
• Nose: a smooth nose opening on notes of candied citrus fruit and almonds, developing on aromas of honey and sweet spices.
• Mouth: a creamy, buttery mouth with accents of pear and vanilla and notes of fresh grasses and recently-cut hay with just a hint of saline emerging at the finish. With its attractive length and persistence, this cuvee has real soul and exceptional aromatic complexity.
Composition: 88% Chardonnay, 12% Pinot Noir.
Vinification: partial malolactic fermentation. Aged for at least 5 years in our cool cellars and 6 months after disgorging.
