Champagne - Pierre Brocard - Tradition Brut N/V
Pierre Brocard's Vineyard is located in the south of champagne in Cote des Bar.
It is one of the new wave champagne producer who decide to make his own champagne using organic and biodynamic principles instead of selling the grapes to big houses.
This was, we can enjoy a champagne of Terroir. It is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot blanc. the dosage is low, only 6 g per litre.
Spirit-lifting loveliness on the nose. Generous lightly baked lemon with bright, red skinned apples, and a spritz of lemon peel dancing over the top. The palate has more of the same: homemade lemonade, sharp but sweet with a hint of lime, lemon curd and pastry. There's a touch of something riper too - dried mango and white peach. Lovely bright finish full of green apple skin and crystallised lime. The 40% of reserve wine adds texture of cream and flavours of brioche.
