Champagne Leclerc Briant Les Crayeres 1er cru750mL bottle
Straw gold colour with pale yellow highlights and myriad tiny bubbles swirling constantly in the glass. Hints of peach, plum, lemon and whipped cream, plus an element of chalk on the nose. Saline notes such as fresh mint, dill and liquorice can be detected with a touch of rhubarb, sunflower seed and dandelion. The palate develops a fresh and silky texture woven around a spine of minerality and soft citrus acidity. The mid palate is a pleasant fusion evoking aromas of fruit, pepper, liquorice and mustard followed by a lively and persistent finish marked by a slight tang of the sea, with a hint of chalk and of lemon confit.
