A Bottle Of Bubbly - NV Cuvée des Caudalies Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, de Sousa


NV Cuvée des Caudalies Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, de Sousa
This gorgeous Blanc de Blancs comes from vines over 60 years old and 50% of the blend is from a perpetual reserve started in 1995. 
The nose is high and intense with notes of brioche, apple cider, fudge, assorted nuts, chalk and grilled lemons. There is lots going on here, and all is good! Very young.
The taste is creamy and refined with notes of vanilla fudge, ripe yellow apples, minerals, peach and grilled toast. Very long and harmonious. Balanced. A very fine acidity. Drunk over three days and IMHO best on day two. Great wine. 5,3 gr. 7+ years.
