Le Champion Champagne Extra Brut NV
Wine Type: Sparkling Wine
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
Winery Notes: “Serious champagne drinkers are devoted to Cheurlin Thomas Le Champion. Very rarely will you find a 100% Pinot Noir champagne; few are crafted and a fewer still are imported into the USA. This Grower’s prestige cuvee is flawless on its own and has no need for added sugar. Cheurlin Thomas Le Champion is pure champagne made for those who demand perfection.”
Tasting Notes: Luminous gold color with sparkling bubbles. On the nose there are notes of red and black fruit punctuated by subtle spices and hints of earth and leaves. On the palate it is strikingly fresh and frisky with lemon peel flavors and hints of earth and oak. Medium bodied with a perky aftertaste.
Food Pairings: Fish, shellfish, beef, pork, veal, grilled dishes, as well as fruity & semisweet desserts.
