Marc Hebrart, ‘Cuvee de Reserve’ Brut, NV Champagne

July 4, 2008


~$32US, 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, Champagne, France

Sprightly, rich and toasty nose – one of those wines you could smell for hours. Very red-fruit-driven, strawberries and right-off-the-tree red apples. Fantastically appley on the palate, like a perfectly ripe Pink Lady apple – red apple sweetness initially, with green apple tartness on the back-end.  Weightier than expected from a Non-Vintage , with a fine chalky finish. Enjoy it with pretty much any food – I actually had fair luck with a Pan-seared Ribeye –  although the sweet potato fries loved it. One of those bottles that make you wonder why you don’t drink more Champagne.
