Andre Beaufort Reserve Grand Cru
Although this isn't labeled as a Vintage Champagne, it's entirely 2008 vintage fruit from the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. It is light yellow in color with streaks of gold throughout. The nose is powerful with aromas of various stone fruits, preserved lemon, and a chalky, yeasty, wet earth character. On the palate this Champagne is fresh and bright, yet it is also bold with fruit and it has a remarkable finish that lingers and gains vigor. This is a wine with great personality and a definite aging potential.
