Champagne Gauthier-Christophe – Millesime 2013 – Blanc de Blancs, Grand Cru

The nose offers power as well as a fine deepness. It reveals notes of ripe green apple and ripe lemon associated with small notes of zests, exotic fruits as well as a very discreet hint of egg cream and almond. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, precise and offers minerality, a good structure, elegance as well as a small straightness. The effervescence is very fine and elegant. On the palate this Champagne expresses notes of ripe lemon, fleshy peach and small notes of ripe pear associated wih small touches of citrus as well as discreet hints of exotic fruits, toasted almond and toasted oak (in the background). An elegant, precise and structured Champagne.
