Champagne Lenoble Brut Nature NV

Honey and almond nose. Bready, honey and almond on the palate. Smooth and saline. Good mousse. Very elegant. Deliciously long.

This is a wine which the Champagne house has been producing for more than 17 years and is the symbol of their production. Made from their older wines (2010 harvest), their smoothest reserve wines (22% of the blend) and aged for 4 years (15% in barrels on lees) – by the rules of Champagne an NV does not require more than 15 months of aging. Their notion is to make a wine which is not austere, and has sufficient complexity and richness without any kind of dosage.

Oysters

The oysters complements the saltiness in the Champagne. You get the oyster in the glass. Hard to tell if it is the wine which exalts the oyster or the other way around. This is a marriage made in heaven.
