Champagne Besserat de Bellefon Cuvee des Moines Brut 2006

$83.99

1930 was a historic turning point for Besserat de Bellefon, which was soon to become legendary. Victor Besserat took up the challenge laid down by the Director of a distinguished Parisian restaurant, the Samaritaine de Luxe, and crafted a delicate and lightly sparkling Champagne as a perfect accompaniment to an entire meal. This marked the birth of a range which is now called the Cuvée des Moines in tribute to the Benedictine monks who first mastered the techniques of fermenting Champagne. This creamy flavoured Champagne, specifically designed for fine dining, was complemented by a rosé version in 1972 to the very great pleasure of all those who appreciate variety in food and wine pairing.

Description

Golden-yellow with satiny tints. Expressive nose with complex notes of very ripe fruits (pear, quince), and fruit jelly. On aeration, the range of grilled and toasted fragrances appears. Once it has warmed slightly, they give way to minty and spicy notes, including ginger, cinnamon, and anise. The finish is dominated by cooked yellow fleshed fruits, generous, and persistent.
