Tasting FEB20: Straight, grippy and mineral, a typical zero dose for lovers of clear, puristic champagne types.
JP Geoffroy: "Pureté is not dosed and therefore distinguished by a stripped down authenticity. The detail and the integrity of this champagne are impressive as precise. The pure expression of the Pinot Meunier delivers fruit and fullness, with finesse and elegance provided by the other accompanying grape varieties. The perfect ripeness of the grapes gives this brut nature a spicy, iodised and smooth side that is punctuated by a pleasant freshness. "
Food pairing tip JP: "An undosed Champagne always makes a perfect aperitif, but try it with a few oysters, and see how it transcends the iodine hints of the shellfish. It also combines well with newer culinary trends. Its sleek frame cries out for a cuisine that respects unadulterated flavours, without artifice. Last but not least, a perfectly mature Brie de Meaux makes a pleasant companion at the end of a meal."
