Georges Remy Le Mont de Tauxieres 2015
This. Nose. Is. Divine! Crushed pineapple, pine nut and some sweet sweet blueberries. It has still got that gushingly rich palate but it holds this wonderfully complex fresh pine nut and lemon peel note next to it. There is so much brilliant concentration to the front end of this and the finish is a real surprise too – I was expecting a monster but, instead, there is a delightfully elegant and soft touch to this. The next day there is an amazing concentration of liquorice, blackcurrant to add to the mix.
We visited Georges before he had even released a Champagne! Having seen a bottle of Bouzy Rouge, (red wine from the village of Bouzy), we found our way to his house and were introduced to a fabulous selection of cuvées. He works mainly with Pinot Noir in Bouzy, Tauxieres and creates a stunning rosé!
50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonnay
