Petit & Bajan, Ambrosie Brut Grand Cru NV Champagne 12% 17.5 Drink 2017-22
70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir from grands crus vineyards in Côte des Blancs and Verzenay. Tirage 23 July 2010, disgorgement 10 May 2016. Dosage 4 g/l. RM.
Strong lemon colour. Danish pastry and candied lemon zest on the nose. Bergamot on the palate, honeysuckle, lightly floral top notes but with a rich, broad base. Saffron brushed over brûléed lemon cream. Dry and focused with a linear pull that brings the richness to a sharply pointed end. Lovely contrast. Good grand cru depth. (TC)
