NV Champagne Jacquart Brut
Lovely nose, green apples and a touch of brioche, a little suggestion of nettle, flint and caramel. Quite complex. Lovely cushioning mousse on the palate, with a suggestion of sweetness, but flows through very nicely with salt-licked acidity, and that nice sticky ripeness of the fruit giving it some earthy, toffee-edged character. Slightly sweet compared to the modish low and zero dosage wines of recent year, but very attractive.
