Caviar for lunch anyone?
Pretty color of light gold.
Strong nose of citrus, apples, yeast, brioche, fresh baked bread, limes, minerals and light almond.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.
Dry on the palate with limes, lemons, green and red apples, earth and yeast.
Tangy finish with limes and bitter herbs.
This Non Vintage Grand Cru Champagne is very tasty.
Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel, and better when not too cold. Tangy and interesting.
Good by itself or with food, and better after some airtime. I had it before, and this time I decided to let it breathe in the bottle for an hour. I liked it better this time.
Wine Spectator 92 points.
Paired nicely with caviar, but good by itself too.
A blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. Aged in French oak barrels for a few months.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

2013 vintage. The second wine of La Chapelle, that is now named " Maison Bleue", but an excellent wine in its own right. At 9 years old this is absolutely gorgeous with an expressive nose of blackberries, wild flowers, pepper and leather, enhanced by a subtle smokiness. In the mouth it combines power with elegance, with pure fruit, subtle spices, silky tannins and great length. Terrific value if the mythical La Chappelle doesn't fit your budget.

2016 vintage. The Jaboulet whites seem to have improved spectacularly under the Caroline Frey reign, as demonstrated by this amazing 2016. Light golden colour. Intense complex perfume of quince, pear, pineapple and lemon confit,intertwined with floral and mineral notes. In the mouth it is powerful and refined at the same time, with layers of fruit and spices, balanced by an attractive almondy bitterness. Impressively long mineral finish. Abv. 14%. — 24 days ago
