Beaugrand Cuvée Gustave, Champagne

100% Chardonnay, Montgueux. Held in oak for 18 months before tirage. 4.5 g/l dosage.

Tasted blind. This is a firework! Explosive aromas on opening, yuzu and quince, green pears, a lift of white pepper spice and almond. Incredible acidity here – maybe this is the Oger wine?  With time a more oxidative aldehydic (sherry) profile becomes evident. At its peak upon opening – not necessarily a bad thing for champagne! This would be a great one to look into if you are a Selosse fan. Drink rather than keep. 16
