Cedric Bouchard Infloresence ‘Val Vilaine’ Champagne 2008 (disgorged April 2010)

100% pinot noir. Pale straw with a hint of green. Persistent delicate bead. Light pretty nose of crisp fresh apple and a hint of citrus with light yeast aromas. Fresh and delicate, almost feminine palate of apple and fresh white flower blossoms – crisp, clean and delicious. Perfect balance of fruit and acid. Long clean finish. Wonderful easy-to-drink champagne. Should develop well.

Côte des Bar, Champagne, France

18.5/20 [tasted 02-02-2011] www.truffle.net.nz

Tasted a few days after purchase so storage not relevant. Good value at $85.50.
