Charles de Fere Brut Tradition


SKU 03074


Visual Aspect: Extraordinary pale gold color. Elegant, delicate bubbles. Nose: The distinctive Chardonnay aromas of toasted bread-crusts are very pleasant. Palate: Elegant, crispy on the palate, yet well-rounded. Velvety with a touch of flintstone. Lasting flavor and a smooth finish. A wonderfully concentrated and harmonious wine.

Wine AdvocateThese two excellent sparkling wines produced just outside France's Champagne region, the Blanc de Blancs Brut and the Chardonnay Tradition Brut, are superb wine bargains. Both are cleanly made, dry wines with good effervescence, medium body, and remarkable flavor, crispness, and quality. The N.V. Blanc de Blancs Brut is lighter and more frothy, whereas the Chardonnay Tradition Brut is a fuller, creamier-textured style of sparkling wine. Both are dry, delicious, and worth buying by the case. Importer: Jean-Claude Boisset Wines, USA, Inc., San Francisco, CA.

Wine EnthusiastA fresh, simple fruity wine with honey and apple flavors. It's light, easy and crisp to finish.

Wine SpectatorThis is neutral, with a hint of apple, but not much else.
