A Bottle Of Bubbly - 2008 Extra Brut, Damien Hugot

The day before New Years Eve, and I am preparing the food for tomorrow - we going to eat and drink well! :-)
Since there will be no post tomorrow I say Happy New Year to everybody and open a bottle of pre bubbly!

2008 Extra Brut, Damien Hugot
The nose is rich and lively with a spicy lemon scent and additional notes of butter cup flowers, melon, toasted bread and cap gun smoke. Very, very good. Young of course.
The taste is juicy and fresh with a supporting, high acidity and notes of grilled lemons, butter biscuits, smoke and lemon fudge. Yummy and fine, but not that complex. Good now, but should get better in 3-4 years time.
90p   (tasted 2016/12)
