Le Lude MCC Brut NV Case & Vintage Cuvee 2012 Offer
The Brut NV is a classic blend of 91% Chardonnay and 9% Pinot Noir. The wine is matured for a minimum of 36 months on the lees before degorgement, and a further 6 months on the cork before release.
Elegant citrus blossoms with fresh lime aromas. Secondary aromas of nougat, roasted nuts and hints of proving dough. Bright, fresh and elegant palate entry. Aromas of grapefruit, ripe lemon and pear forms a structured mid-palate. The mousse shows finesse and texture with a restrained presence. Length develops delicately on the palate with fine tertiary aromas of caramelised honey, vanilla and dried fig.
Vintage 2012 - Slight nutty, brioche character coming from the ageing period. Subtle hints of bruised apple, grapefruit and lime leaves. The soft mouse, and lingering acidity balance the linear and tight acidity that carries this bubbly.
