Champagne Collet Brut NV
An assemblage of over 100 Crus, this cuvée is a true voyage of the senses across the terroir of Champagne, from the Marne Valley to south of the Aisne. A composition completed with 35% reserve wines in order to preserve the Collet style year after year. 50% Meunier from the villages of Festigny, Bonneil, Reuil, and the Ardre Valley contributes character, richness and tension to the wine. The Crus of Châtillon-sur-Marne and Fleury-la-Rivière offer tender and luscious aromas of exotic fruits. 30% Chardonnay from the southern region of Epernay, Etoges or from Vitry-le-François contributes tenderness, enjoyment and tonicity with citrus and dried flower notes. 20% Pinot Noir gives the assemblage structure and tension, thanks to the Crus of the Côte des Bar.
The cuvee Champagne Collet Brut reaches full maturity after 3 years in the House's famous limestone cellars.
Appearance: anise yellow gold with a fine string of bubbles.
Nose: Notes of white flowers, citrus. Stone fruit, such as quince, apple, crisp pear as well as white each. Small delicate touches of spices, cumin, anise and herbs, black tea and lime tea. Light pastry notes, like the puff pastry of an apple tart.
Palate: An impression of freshness as delicate as the bubbles are fine. A wine with a balanced texture. Stone fruit (quince, pear, apple and almost-candied lemon zest). A straightforward and refined wine, with a wonderful persistence in the mouth, crunchy like a thin caramel biscuit.
