Wine Review: This coral colored Champagne from Bessarat de Bellefon was popular with the tasting panel. It opens with a mild strawberry and plum bouquet with hints of yeasty bread dough. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, round and fills your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild pink grapefruit with notes of watermelon. We also detected hints of tangerine and cranberry. The finish is dry and shows nice length as it fades away. This Champagne is food friendly and would pair well with dried fruit stuffed game bird or Stuart's cranberry apple crisp. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Appearance : The colour is pink with salmon glints. Fine, light bubbles form a creamy ring of froth. Fragrance : The nose is generous, intense and sophisticated and strongly marked by summer berry fruits (wild strawberries). It evokes an impression of jelly, redcurrant and almond. Notes of linden and hawthorn. Taste : The attack is tangy, with good volume in the mouth. There are again notes of summer berry fruits (blackberry and black currants). The finish is generous and delicately spicy. Particularly enjoyable as an aperitif, it is an ideal accompaniment to diced, sundried tomato and herb verrine and prawn skewers with basil and lime.
