    92 Champagne Alexandre Bonnet Les Riceys La Géande 7 Cépages (Sparkling white)

    Pale lime yellow. Neutral, slightly oaky on the nose. Rather beautiful floral waxy, zesty. Limes, green apples. Lovely, elegant freshness on the palate - ethereal, lacy, fresh but with some gorgeous weight, chalky phenolics, and just enough green and barely ripe fruit to keep things interesting. Mouth-watering salinity and almost grippy phenolics with sour grapefruit pith. Long, clean, fresh, elegant with a very firm structure and an almost gastronomic edge - in line with some of the more severe Chablis. Almost mouth puckering laser sharp on the finish. Would absolutely kill for this with a light lunch (sardines on baguette?) Elegant, delicate, fresh, clean, awfully pretty. Intense rather than ripe.
