Chardonnay, Pur Prisme, Guiborat Fils, Grand Cru, RM, Cramant, Champagne AC, France, 12.5% abv. US$45

This Champagne was created by Richard Fouquet, a 5th generation vigneron and récoltant manipulant (someone who grows his own grapes, makes his own wine and markets them under his own name) in Cramant.

We visited Richard and his wife Karine in 2014 and continue to order and enjoy their wines.

On the eyes, this Grand Cru, 100% Chardonnay Champagne is pale gold with evenly distributed beads and a gentle mousse.  On the nose, aromas of lemon and pear mingle with shaved nut and crushed rock.

The palate is extra dry with deep acidity and flavours of lemon pith with yellow grapefruit and toasted almond.  The long finish is augmented by toffee and fresh French bread.

WSET Very Good plus.  Disgorged December, 2015 and purchased in Seattle, WA.

      Hi Khun Fah! I order them via Garagiste in Seattle. You have to subscribe to their service and then watch the daily offerings for the release. They can ship to you in Cali!
