Chateau Frank Brut (2008)
A classic methode champenoise sparkling wine made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with dominant characters of lime, apricot, fresh herbs, orange candy and ginger, finishing off with sour dough and mineral undertones.
A great balance is achieved between the fruity contributions of the Pinot Noir and the acidic backbone of the Chardonnay resulting in a long clean finish. This wine shows great complexity with layers of fruit, floral notes, fresh dough, mineral characters, and an enduring creamy finish. Serve with sushi, pâté or grilled salmon.
