2009 Champagne Joseph Desruets ‘Sous les Clos’ Premier Cru Brut: Apple & Mango!
Score : 92+/100
This Prestige Cuvée Champagne was COMMENDED at Social Vignerons Prestige Cuvée Champagne AWARDS.
This Champagne has a rather intense yellow color with gold hues.
The nose also displays some great aromatic intensity dominate by notes of ripe apple, mango and a hint of walnut. It’s filled with luscious ripe fruit characters with an oxidative edge.
The palate is gorgeously mineral, dry but with a very elegant smoothness, coating body and delicate bubbles. Very solid and enjoyable balance with a salty feel, the flavors also have a complex both fruity and nutty oxidative edge. A few elegant phenolics to the finish.
A very complex and extremely well balanced wine filled with personality, minerality and ripe apple and mango characters in a dry and controlled elegant style.
Retails around $60 or 40€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
