Cuvée Grenat 2013 has beautiful green and silver highlights. The regular stream of bubbles is quite soothing. The overall character of this blend evokes freshness and elegance.
The nose opens up with fine delicacy and expresses notes of granny apple, almond, grapefruit peels and autumn foliage. Spring comes to the fore with nuances of vetiver, flowering broom and honey. It has a subtle bouquet, quite complex yet youthful.
The attack is quite rich yet soothing. After a comforting start, the acidity and effervescence bring freshness and rythm to the wine. The body and
dosage generate a voluminous sensation, making for a beautifully consistent ensemble. Well balanced, it has a pure silky texture. Flavours on the palate are those of linden, ripe pear along with ocean breeze and limestone notes, making for a very elegant champagne.
A rich and long finale with iodine and smoky notes. It leaves a light saline sensation on the palate punctuated by fine acidity
'Cuvée Grenat 2013, is emblematic of the harmony that its vintage represents. Its fruity and zestful nuances incarnate the outcome of a vintage that gets to reveal its true quality. 'Jean-Christophe LENFANT
