Champagne Leclerc Briant, Réserve Brut
“40% Pinot Noir, 40% Meunier, 20% Chardonnay. 20% barrel-fermented base wines.
Mid gold, with a fine bead. Ripe apple, creamy brioche lees and some almond. Dry, crisp apple acidity, with some oxidative bruised notes and a flinty, bready mid palate. Prickly mousse that is not the finest, but good length”.
