Champagne Ledru – Ambonnay

Some wines tasted a la volee with no dosage of course.

2006 Brut Nature – purity and finesse – hints of citrus and apricots.
2007 Goulte Nature – really quite superb – 100PN – unctuous and red fruity but not heavy. I prefer the Nature over the regular dosaged cuvee.
2008 Rose Saignee – wow – the acidity of 2008 works so well in counterpoint with the subtle tannins.

Extra-Brut 2008 base, 85PN 15CH, dosage zero.
Wow the purity and minerality here is an absolute standout, there is a hint of red fruit and hazelnut but never overpowering. SUPERB

2002 Brut Nature 85PN 15CH
One of my favourites of all time, great length and lovely spicy red fruits, confiture, hints of apricot – very complex. SUPERB

Brut 2009 base dosage 8g 85PN 15CH
Complex but a little too rich for me – I prefer the extra-brut.

2007 Millesime 85PN 15CH dosage 8g
Large framed – complex and weighty – honeyed and apricots. Very good.

2007 Goulte 100PN dosage 8g
Really very fine and handles the dosage very well. Mineral and pure – stone fruits – apricots. Superb.

Rose assemblage 2008 base 100PN dosage 8g
Sour cherries – salty – chalky – toasty – perfect balance – very good.
