Tasting Notes

Ambonnay from André Beaufort estate has a nice golden colour and avvery fine, persistent beam.

On the nose it’s toasty and complex with yogurt, toasted almonds, candied bergamot and white flowers.

The mouthfeel is round and full with vanilla and honey but also a citrus touch and a bitter aftertaste of fresh almonds.

The finish is elegant and long.

Champagne is a sparkling wine from France. While the word Champagne can be used to refer to any sparkling wine, it is illegal in the EU and some countries to label any product Champagne unless it comes from the Champagne wine region of France and is made according to the appellation’s regulations. This alcoholic beverage is made from particular grape varieties grown in the Champagne region, according to rules that include, among other things, specific vineyard practices, grape sourcing exclusively from specified locations within the Champagne region, specific grape-pressing methods, and secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to cause carbonation.

Pinot noir

Red wine grape variety

Pinot noir is a type of red wine grape that belongs to the Vitis vinifera genus. It’s also probable that the name refers to wines produced mainly from Pinot noir grapes. The name comes from the words “pine” and “black” in French. The name pine refers to the grape variety’s tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped fruit bunches.

Green-skinned grape variety used in wine production

Chardonnay is a grape variety with a green skin that is used to make white wine. The grape variety originated in eastern France’s Burgundy wine region, but it is now grown all over the world, from England to New Zealand. Growing Chardonnay is seen as a rite of passage for new and emerging wine regions, as well as an easy entry into the international wine market.
