Wine school III

In wine school earlier this month one class had to be about sparkling wine and champagne of course.

L'Hereu de Raventós i Blanc
Light yellow oclour with green hues. Aromatic nose of apples, bread and hint of rubber. Palate is dry and very crisp with apple, bread and grapefruit. This is suppose to be a very good Cava but too crisp for my taste.

Langlois Crémant de Loire Brut
Light yellow colour with fine, delicate bubbles. A complex nose mixing different fruits (quince, peach, grapefruit) and a fresh, delicate and refined mouth-feel. Just my style of Crémant. I like very much.

Rotari Brut Riserva
Yellow colour. The nose is intense, elegant and complex with citrus, almond and bared. Palate is dry, full, fragrant, soft, well balanced and mature with citrus, preach and almond. When drinking Rotari you know exactly what you get, but it's nothing wrong with that. It's good stuff!

Graham Beck Blanc de Blancs Brut
Light yellow colour. Rich yeasty aromas with hints of clean lime fruit on the nose. Dry and crisp plate with green apples, melon and bread. I'm not sure if I liked this or not. Probably too crisp for my liking.

Devaux Blanc de Noirs Brut
Yellow colour. Butterscotch and almond in the nose with a powerful palate mature pears, baked apples, aniseed and spice on the finish. Oh my, this was pure Champagne heaven. Not yet available in Sweden it was pure indulgence to drink something like this.
