Gerard Bertrand Thomas Jefferson Brut 2016
|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Limoux|
The Chenin and Chardonnay grapes bring texture and balance, with the Chardonnay also providing the fine bubbles. The Chenin adds vivacity, and enhances the crémant’s impressive longevity.
A beautiful, golden yellow robe.
Complex, aromatic nose revealing hints of white flower, with hints of honey, green apple and toast.
Crisp, elegant structure on the palate, where the fine texture of the bubbles complements the wine’s natural vivacity wonderfully.
Freshly dried straw, soft toast, lightly grilled yellow apple and a touch of dried lemon peel form the nose of this dry, attractive sparkler. The palate is bright and bubbly, with initially aggressive carbonation that mellows fast on the palate and yields a round, ripe yellow orchard-fruit flavor. Smooth and clean, the finish leaves you ready for more.
Tart and tangy, with lime candy and pink grapefruit sorbet flavors, showing an assertive bead. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
