Tasting note: ‘Clos du Mesnil’, Krug, 2008

Comments = This superb Blanc de Blancs continues to express all its freshness and precise acidity. The overall balance of this 2008 wine remains stunning years later. Aromas of citrus, biscuits and brioche are complemented wonderfully by acidity and a lingering bubble. Its finish is very long and persistent. Undoubtedly, one of the greatest Champagnes that I have had the chance to taste for a unique and exceptional 2008 vintage which allowed the full potential of this single-plot champagne to be expressed. This is a truly mythical and timeless Champagne.

Final Grade = A++

Tasting Note: Champagne, André BERGERE, Blanc de Blancs, Brut Nature, Non Vintage

Comments = This Champagne offers you an incredible value for money. A well done Brut Nature that focuses on minerality, acidity and a refined bubbles. The aromas are noticeable and balanced but the acidity and the tensed Chardonnay aromatics together with a very low residual sugar are clearly the strong suit of this Champagne. It offers you an incredible value for money at around 30 euros!

Final Grade = B+
