This vintage Champagne made from 80% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay shows the richness of the 2005 vintage without losing balance and structure. Aged for 5-6 years on the lees, it is open and inviting with aromas of lemon fig, graham cracker, honey, sweet cream, and hazelnut. The mousse is full and creamy, and the flavors mingle delightfully on the palate, with varying sweet and savory accents adding layers of complexity. This has all the richness and flavor development to satisfy the Clicquot set while simultaneously winning approval from even the geekiest of wine geeks (read: Joe, Gary). Enjoy tonight, for a special occasion or any occasion!
