Fluteau "Cuvée Réservée" Brut Champagne
This Champagne is aged on its lees for a minimum of three years. This extended time on the yeast infuses the wine with a robust, creamy texture. The blend mainly Pinot Noir (85%), with 15% Chardonnay. Golden-yellow with a lively, lovely bead and a fine, persistent stream of bubbles, this complex, refined bubbly has a fruity nose with notes of peach marmalade, fresh raspberry, bergamot, honey and licorice. The Pinot-dominated palate is rich and fruity, with a touch of yellow fruit and a hint of citrus from the Chardonnay on the mid-palate. This is a great choice for an aperitif, but will also show well with heartier foods.
