Paul Dethune Blanc de Noris Champagne Brut

This sparkling wine has medium lemon colour with touch of pink tinge. On nose it gives pronounced aromas of ripe apple, lemon, pear drop, yeast, mineral and honey, quite complex. It is off-dry with fairly high acidity, medium bodied and creamy mousse. Medium alcohol level and over medium flavour intensity. Apple, citrus, grapefruit and touch of honey and caramel. Barely over medium length with citrus and honey finish. (92) Touch of bitterness at the finish makes it not having an even higher rating.
