Wine of the Week – Beaumont des Crayères Grande Réserve NV Champagne by Suzi Redmond
Beaumont des Crayeres Grande Reserve Champagne: This is a special champagne, it has two and a half years lees aging which gives it a great body with lots of those champagne characteristics that we know and love. Usually this length of ageing would cost more, and is not that common in non-vintage Champagnes – or at least not at a this affordable a price.
This champagne has a fantastic nose; I believe the first word I said was “wow”! You have some beautiful floral touches as well as yummy brioche and nutty characteristics.
All those aromas flow delightfully onto the palate, along with some light citrus tones. It is a rich champagne with a lovely creamy mouthfeel and fine yet persistent bubbles.
A fantastic champagne, one definitely not to be missed!!
