Heidsieck Monopole "Blue Top" Brut Champagne
Full bodied with honeyed toast and caramel flavors, this is a soft wine with pleasantly rustic bubbles. For toasts.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Light yellow. High-toned aromas of lemon, green apple, toasted almond and herbs. Compact and austere on entry, then juicier in the mid-palate, offering flavors of orchard fruits and peach. Finishes on the lean side, with good cut and an echo of citrus fruits.
Soft-fruited Champagne, with pear and pink grapefruit flavors. It has a bitter almond edge that cuts through the acidity. The finish is soft, towards the sweet end of brut.
Candied apple character, with a hint of red berry and a refined texture, mark this elegant, medium-bodied bubbly, which is fresh, with a moderate finish. Drink now." (12/10)
This very friendly and open non-vintage Champagne is composed of 70% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 10% Meunier.
