100% Pinot Noir, made by the Champagne method by Caroline Lestime. Full bodied, very fine mousse, nice cut, elegant and very aromatic of toast, stone fruit and citrus. Very flexible and able to pair with oily fishes, shellfish, chicken and root vegetable
Now we often hear that this wine or that tastes of, “sparkling white Burgundy” and while I get the idea it very rarely rings true. That said, this Gagnard Grand Lys drinks like white Burgundy. Rich and nutty like Meursault. Focused and laser sharp like Puligny-Montrachet. All the while skipping like a light stone across your palate. This is NOT a wine for “I just like it bubbly!” crowd, this is a wine for the, “I’m looking for something serious to take home and spend the night with” set. Toasty, doughy, browned butter, green leaves, white flowers, orange cooked into delicate shreds and kissed with vanilla and lemon syrup. Just a monster of a sexy beast that we were only able to procure 2 cases of. Get it while you can.
