Grand Cru Champagne les Échansons 2006
This champagne was one of the best experiences of my visit to the Champagne region.
A blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay.
Mailly - Grand Cru Champagne les Échansons 2006 ( 90 tsomw points )
In the glass a golden Champagne with twinkling amber highlights.
On the nose the wine is deep and is very sophisticated. Perfectly mature fruits like pear and mirable with hints of lemon mixed with delicate hints of almonds, honey and caramel.
On the palate great balance between the flavor of butter, a fresh freshness and the presence of herbs makes for a deliciously soft taste.
