2005 Michel Arnould Vintage "Carte d'Or" Brut Champagne
This Grand Cru vintage, made from this estate's oldest Verzenay vines and the the Côte des Grands Blancs vines, and only wines from an exceptional year. A maturing process of at least 3 years donates all that is necessary to allow this vintage to be called 'Carte d’Or.' The color of this vintage is of a briliant yellow, the finesse of the bubbles form an elegant line. The first nose, expressive, reveals hints of exotic fruits, then when aired, hints of mature yellow stewed fruits appear. The bouquet is candied, the structure is well balanced with a persistent roundness.
