Benoit Lahaye Brut Essentiel
|Region||France, Champagne, Bouzy|
Compared to the Brut Nature, this is much more flowery and fruity in aroma, its 6 g/l of dosage bringing out notes of red cherry, peach and red currant. It feels very typical of Bouzy in its forward, voluptuous fragrance, but it also shapes its ripeness well, finishing with focused, refined flavors. It's an excellent non-vintage brut
Rich flavors of golden raisin, dried apricot, lemon curd and candied ginger are enlivened by firm acidity, resulting in a well-balanced, juicy wine that ends with a lively, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2015.
