Paul Lebrun Grande Réserve - A good glass of classic #Champagne

16 June 2016, by Sebastian Nickel

What I especially love about this wine, is the fact that it sticks to its colours despite all fashions and trends. Being a typical “aperitif champagne”, it has an intense bouquet and full flavors. Generous or even opulent on the palate like a burlesque dancer, it appears confident and stays cool, caring very little about todays enthusiasm for slender and elongated wines.

Personally, I have nothing at all against a (good) Champagne Brut Nature, but I must admit that this “old school” interpretation of a “blanc de blancs” reassures my palate. Although it is full-bodied and smooth, it shows the typical, fresh acidity of Chardonnay grown on chalky soils, flattering the tongue and tickling the palate. This wine is a one-man show on its own, that will fully entertain you while waiting for diner, but also welcomes slightly salted savouries as an aperitif.
