A Bottle of Bubbly - NV L Brut, Victor Lejeune

There is always a rigth moment to open a bottle of Champagne, isn´t it? We just bought a new car, and why not celebrate the fact that I won´t be able to buy as much wine as I used too for a while...:-)
Then a relative cheap bottle of Champagne would be perfect, right?

NV L Brut, Victor Lejeune
A fairly light, fresh nose with notes of red apples, lemon peel, dry bread and some mineral. It actually fattens up in the glass in a positive way, with more mature apples and some road dust after a while. Not complex but nice.
The taste is fresh and light with a good red apple, lemon and mineral taste. The acidity is nice and cleans the palate effectively. The taste also gets better with some air. Medium long with a clean finish.
