Duc de Romet 'Prestige' Brut

The Duc de Romet is a delightfully balanced Blanc de Noirs. This is a ND (Négociant-Distributeur), which means this is a blend from the different growers in the Vallée de la Marne who do not produce their own Champagne. The grapes are sent to the local co-op where they are fermented and blended.

The vineyards are entirely from the village of Vandières which is along the Marne River, a few villages west of Cumières. Vandières has the same rating as Merfy, where Chartogne-Taillet is located, but the parcels here are situated in a south-eastern facing amphitheater around the village, much like Oger, which allows the grapes to become very ripe.

Review:
This lively Champagne features a pleasing harmony to the layers of racy acidity and the fine, zesty mousse, offering rich flavors of whole-grain toast, baked plum, fleur de sel and crunchy white peach. Ends clean and citrusy on the lingering finish. (A.N.)
