Caze Thibaut Les Fourches 2016
God this nose is good; so sweet with notes of almond, sweet oak and pine nut.
The palate is brilliantly poised – the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. Energetic, rich, laser-like with this wonderful tropical sweetness piercing the finish. There's lemon curd, white pepper and toasted oak and the finish is so spot on and textural. Like all the great Champagnes there is a brilliant link between the oak and all that gorgeous fruit.
A producer we fell in love with when we first tried their wines a few years ago, and, a producer that perfectly captures what Sip is all about; brilliant wines, tiny production, and a lovely human being. Fabien is the 10th generation winemaker in the family. Working with vines in Chatillon sur Marne, he creates precise and elegant wines with a lovely structure.
