Moutard: Climat de Champagne – Les Riceys

Made of 100% Pinot Noir from Les Riceys, harvest 2014. Dosage of 0.4 grams. Light golden color with fine bubbles and soft mousse. On the nose you get Golden Delicious apple, raspberry, blueberry, licorice, cake, melon, apple and cherry in syrup and mocha ice cream. The mouthfeel is soft and generous. On the palate you get sweet pear, melon, soft raspberry. Mellow and round, typical Les Riceys. The finish is quite interesting and has Provence herbs with thyme and lavender, dried onions and charred fruits. If I had this blind I would probably say that this was a rosé. Best to drink fresh.
