Jéroboam - 3L

Jéroboam – Millésime 2008 Brut

Description

Unlike the non-vintage Fallet-Dart champagnes, the Millésime brut is made from the grapes of one single year’s harvest which is of exceptional quality. Chardonay from the parcel called les Malivas, gives an exceptional freshness and an aromatic finesse to the Millésime brut. Some of the best Pinot noir is also incorporated into this blend. Partly vinified in oak barrels, this wine shows great elegance and complexity, balancing freshness and a light note of brioche. At least 7 years of ageing in in the Fallet-Dart cellars are needed to obtain this distinguished millésime champagne, time works its magic and it reaches a full-bodied maturity.
