DRAPPIER BRUT NATURE CHAMPAGNE

8574.jpg

France — Champagne • $58.95 • 92/100

Medium yellow with highlights of old gold. Aromas of green apple, lemon-lime, honeydew and white peach are underpinned by notes of dried herbs and toast. Bone-dry, with high acidity, the wine is austere but still has some linear complexity, carrying its firm acidity into a stony-mineral finish. This is a style that I like very much, but of course with no sweetness from the dosage, it lacks the generosity that many demand from Champagne. 100% Pinot Noir, zero dosage, disgorged 01/17. • Tasted 2017-05-27 • LCBO id#179275 • Find it at your nearest LCBOFAMILY WINE MERCHANTS INC.
