HURÉ FRÈRES INSTANTANÉE EXTRA BRUT CHAMPAGNE 2008

France — Champagne • $64.95 • 92/100

Almost equal parts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, this is a firmly acid-driven and elegant, dry Champagne. It is medium-depth straw-yellow, with glints of gold. Lightly bruised apple is followed by aromas of lemon and melon, and is underlaid by toasty, leesy and roasted almond notes. The hint of oxidative bruising recedes on the palate, as the crisp acidity brightens the fruit, dries the palate, and lengthens into a salty-citrus finish. Complex and quite lovely — and an excellent value. • Tasted 2017-08-05 • LCBO id#491761 • Find it at your nearest LCBOBURGUNDY DIRECT LTD. (Agent)
