GROWER CHAMPAGNE CLUBTasting Notes
Everything you’ve ever loved about Farmer Fizz.
Stéphane Coquillette ‘Carte d’Or’ 1er Cru / Chouilly, Champagne, NV
A deeper blue fruit note to it than you’d ever expect. It merely hints on the nose but on the tongue there is pomegranate and fresh picked blueberries. Crisply perfumed of jasmine and a bit ginger spicy in texture, it also displays a round ripeness that creates an awesome counterbalance.
Champagne Saint-Chamant Millesime 2008 / Blanc de Blancs / Épernay, Champagne, NV
This Champagne is voluptuous, bordering on hedonistic. Rich creme brulee with burnt sugar top, baked apple, tangerines and lemon glazed scones. Vibrant acid finish, but with complex tertiary notes on the mid palate that reveal the wines age. Ten years resting in a bottle on its lees has developed a fabulous textural depth.
