Besserat de Bellefon, Champagne Brut Cuvée des Moines (NV)
The Champagnes of Besserat de Bellefon are unique in that they are made at only 4.5 atmospheres of pressure across the range rather than the standard 6. These Champagnes are made specifically to be paired with food, and this Brut would make a fine partner from everything from Charcuterie to oysters.
Tightly knit and racy, this is mouthwatering and harmonious, showing flavors of black currant, smoked almond, candied lemon zest, honey and chalk. Vibrant and hard to stop sipping, with a firm, smoky finish. Disgorged November 2014. Drink now through 2020. Rated 92 - Wine Spectator
