Esprit 1er Cru - 2018

A vintage Brut Nature, Esprit is a structured and elegant Champagne. Built on Chardonnay, it’s got enticing chalk and mineral characteristics, while Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir—a rarity in Montagne de Reims—deliver red-berry aromas, plus red fruit, pepper, and spice notes on the palate. A structured and elegant Champagne. Red berries on the nose, very pinot-like style, then Chardonnay chalk and minerality shows up. Mouth is peppery, smooth spices and ripe red fruits. It's recommended to not serve Solemme Champagne(s) too cold.
