|| || $99 | José Michel & Fils Tradition Brut Champagne Magnum

Description

Wine making is one of the oldest arts that reflects not only the character of the terroir but also the talents of the wine grower. José Michel & Fils has followed this philosophy and passed it down from generation to generation. José Michel, fifth generation, is now leading the family business and is proud of his traditional knowledge acquired from his ancestors. He closely watches over each stage of the production, from pressing to disgorging, from dosing to shipping operations.

The non-vintage Brut is a blend in which the 70% Pinot Meunier forms the base, and 30% Chardonnay adds complexity and finesse. In addition to the base vintage (typically 2 years old), the NV Brut benefits from being blended with 30% reserve wines that are often 4 or 5 years old including a 20+ year old “perpetual reserve”. The champagne is typically aged for 2 years “sur lattes” and carries a dosage of 7 grams.

Light yellow-gold. Fresh tangerine, pear and sweet butter on the fragrant nose. The palate offers apple, plum, raspberry and a bracing kick of citrus zest. A mineral element adds lift and cut to the penetrating finish of honeysuckle and rose.
