Champagne Marie Copinet Monsieur Leonard, 750 ml

$59.95 ea

Lovers of chardonnay and of Champagne will be delighted by the purity of this wine. Ideal to serve as a stylish aperitif and also an excellent match with a variety of seafood. The pale yellow colour with flecks of gold gives the fresh appearance typical of chardonnay. The nose too is fresh, with hints of menthol at first, then notes of crème fraiche and almonds combine to delightful effect. After a moment or two to breathe the nose becomes more complex and intense with exotic fruits (pineapple) and a decided hint of toast. On the palate the attack is lively and sustained and this leads seamlessly on to a fresh mineral finish that ends on a note of absolute purity. A solid, dense and straightforward wine.
