A Bottle of Bubbly - 2004 De Saint Gall

In the midst of all the hectic christmas preparations, you really need to wind down with a glass (or two...) of bubbly.

2004 De Saint Gall Brut
This Blanc de Blancs opens very nicely on the nose, full of fresh red apples, newly baked bread, blood oranges, elder berries and hard lemon candy. Upfront and ready. Very good.
The taste is crisp, lively and rather elegant with nice notes of oranges, red apples, almond crust and dry fudge. A medium long, light, fine finish with a nice orange bitterness. This is drinking nicely now but could surely be kept for 5+ years.
88p   (tasted 2012/12)
