    90 Champagne Jacquart Villers-Marmery Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru (Sparkling white)

    Very pale lemon colour. Creamy, leafy, herbal, floral aromas. almost scented lemons. Crunchy green apples, some pithy apple pip tannins, with lots of lacey white lemon fruit. and white flowers and apple blossom. Long clean and fresh barely ripe acidity and more green apples with a touch of subtly floral gooseberries opening up to some rather lovely perfumed lemons. Very delicate, ephemeral and pretty with some gentle biscuits and white nuts coming though on the finish to give a balanced weight and complexity. Fresh, approachable, elegant, well balanced. Acidity and freshness-dominated.
