Francoise Bedel Cuvee Entre Ciel & Terre
65% Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay. Francoise and her son Vincent farm only a few small acres and vinify tiny quantities of premium chapagne in Western Marne Valley. The grapes are harvested by hand and the champagne ages for several years in the cellar.
Wonderful effervescence with very fine bubbles, although the bead is evanescent. Bright and brilliant gold in color, it has cristalline limpidity. The nose is fresh and reminiscent of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia). After agitation, it reveals very delicate aromas of floral-perfumed honey and spice bread. A champagne with a crisp initial impact on the palate, giving way to rich and generous floral notes, enhanced by a touch of liquorice. The dosage is understated and perfectly integrated, thus allowing the true essence of the wine to come to the fore. This finish is exuberant with a freshness accentuated by citrus aromas (lemon and grapefruit). This champagne would go well with seafood or fish in a sour sauce.
