Champagne Christian Bourmault Les Fetes 1er Cru 2014
Sparkling wine. Champagne, France. Organic. 100% Chardonnay. The 2014 version of Fetes is a rich and elegant Champagne. Aromas of yeast and lemon zest on the nose as well as some green apple. On the palate, the flavors become more lemon curd and lemon zest with yellow and green apple and a hint of salinity. The bright acidity and high tone of the wine is balanced out by the richness of a slightly oxidative style of winemaking. While delightful with pancakes on a weekend, this wine will work equally brilliantly with hard cheeses, shellfish, and caviar.
