Domaine Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve NV
80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay | Alc: 12% Smooth + Dry, Effervescent
Bouzy, Champagne, France
Domaine Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve NV is a magnificent, elegantly structured Champagne that exudes flavors of peach, crisp apple and toast. A finely balanced, fresh Champagne that spends 30 months on lees. This 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay blend (from 30+ year old vines) drinks like a vintage wine. Honeysuckle blossoms tickle the aromatic nose. Toasty, lovely notes of warm, crusty oatmeal biscuits drizzled with molasses and sweet, red fruits characterize the bountiful, layered mouth.
“Emphasizing pinot noir’s richness (80 percent of the blend) with hints of chamomile from the chardonnay (20 percent), this has brisk notes of strawberries and tart pink grapefruit. It’s chalky and tense, with touches of sweetness to contrast and broaden the tight feel of the bubbles.” 91 Pts – Wine Spectator
