Champagne Michel Loriot, Apollonis – Monodie 2010, Meunier Vieilles Vignes – Extra-Brut

The nose is fresh, fruity, elegant, racy and offers a racy minerality. It reveals notes of yellow peach and small notes of apple associated with fine touches of kumquat, small fruits, discreet hints of yellow flowers, spices as well as very discreet hints of brioche butter, beeswax and an imperceptible hint of ripe almond. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy frame, suavity, fat, a small tension, elegance as well as a good definition and a fine melodious side. The effervescence is well-built and elegant. On the palate this Champagne expresses notes of yellow plum, quince and small notes of yellow peach associated with fine touches of brioche butter as well as very discreet hints of zest, flowers (yellow flowers, lemon flowers), dried almond and an imperceptible hint of nutmeg. An imperceptible chews on the finish / persistence. A gastronomic Champagne.
