Besserat de Bellefon Champagne Cuvée des Moines Brut is a brilliant straw color with copper highlights. The aromatic palette reveals fragrances such as honeysuckle, acacia, dried flower notes, white peach, and Mirabelle plum. As the wine opens up, hazelnut and praline notes appear. Definite fresh fruit notes of apricot, pineapple, and bush peach. A long and assertive finish, boding well for this elegant and distinguished wine.
Cuvee des Moines does not undergo malolactic fermentation.
“This mineral-driven version offers a soft and creamy mousse and bright, mouthwatering acidity. Balanced and well-meshed, with subtle black cherry, Gala apple, ginger and chalk notes. Drink now through 2018.” 92 Pts – Wine Spectator
