Wine Review: This pale straw colored Champagne from Collet is the real deal and was the clear winner of our Big Blind tasting. It opens with a fragrant bread dough bouquet with hints of strawberry, damp foliage and dry roasted nuts. On the palate, this is old school Champagne. The flavor profile is a honey and green apple blend with notes of cashew, bread dough and flinty minerality. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this delicious Champagne with Emeril's Coquilles St. Jacques. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Esprit Couture is a celebration of tradition, crafted entirely by hand from start to finish and composed of only our finest crus. This elegant champagne is based on wine-making traditions and techniques handed down through generations. Appearance: Fine sequence of effervesces with attractive golden highlights. Nose: Floral notes with a slight vanilla undertone. Palate: Fruit driven flavors and aromas with notes of stone fruits and citrus, refined and elegant texture with a prolonged finish of rare intensity. Serve chilled at 46-48° F

Organic status: not organic
