Champagne Gueusquin 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut NV
Great value for a 1er Cru Grower Champagne
"My new obsession"
"Delicious flavour, is very soft and dry champagne. I could be drinking this all evening. Amazing Quality for the value."
Owner-Grower Champagne house near the village of Dizy in the Cotes des Blancs. Nicolas Gueusquin uses conservation cultivation in order to produce wines that closely represent the terroirs and protect the environment. Wine goes through malolactic fermentation and is aged for 30 months on lattes instead of the minimum 15 months required. Extremely good value for a Champagne of this calibre.
Bright pale gold with exceptionally fine, well integrated bubbles. Expressive, toasty, apricot nose with an elegant, complex, ripe fruit and biscuit palate. Long, ample, fresh finish. Beautifully well balanced and holds its own against some of the more well known Champagnes in blind tasting.
