LEGRAS BRUT CHAMPAGNE BLANC DE BLANC
Happy New Year! 2009 Begins with a pop, as in Champagne cork.
Pale yellow-tan color with aromas of sourdough bread, yeast, and green apple. Toasted oak flavor components are accented with lots of lemon zest and apple. Very dry, with great acidity. Menthol flavors emerge very late on the finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
A very round and polished Champagne. Bubbles on this one were still vibrant on day 3 and the the flavors were as sharp as when first opened. The alcohol was showing through on the nose at first, but settled down rather quickly as this sparkler opened up. Retails for around $40 making it a solid competitor in its price setting.
