Serge Mathieu Brut Tradition Blanc de Noir NV


Imported Sparkling »
$49.99 inc GST

The Blanc de Noirs is a striking burnished gold, almost bronze, in colour; the aromas of ripe cherrylike Pinot melding with meat, spices, and leather lead on to a grand palate-filing mouthfeel uncannily like a mini Bollinger (Grande Annee, not Special Cuvee!). Yet the most lasting impression is of finesse, balance and the lightest of touches in the winemaking . Drink upon release 5+ years. 1001 Wines you must try before you Die, Neil Beckett

Wine of the month: Aged for four years, that time on its lees has imbued this fizz with beautiful, autolytic complexity. There’s a hint of dried red berries on the nose, lying alongside perky citrus fruits and cream aromas. The palate is vibrant, full of flavor and wonderfully balanced (17.5/20)’— Decanter Magazine
