Heidsieck Monopole Blue Top Brut (375ml Half Bottle)
Heidsieck & Co. Monopole's famous Blue Top is their most popular Champagne.
On the eye: Pale yellow in color, with brilliant reflections.
On the nose: Fruit, primarily yellow fruits, and particularly peach, predominate at the initial tasting. However, there are also aromas of stewed fruits, with a hint of honey. Not to mention floral notes with white flowers offering a foretaste of the lightness of the wine. These are clearly generous and persistent aromas and promise a highly aromatic vintage. Its primary aromas are of fruit, not just fresh fruit, but also candied fruits.
On the palate: The promise of the aromas in the nose is more than delivered by a round mouth, a subtle attack and good length. The mouth, like the nose, is dominated by fruit – peaches, cherry plums, and then oranges. Freshness, elegance and delicacy emerge gently throughout the entire tasting. It is very pleasant on the palate.
This vintage is balanced, pleasant, ‘approachable’, so to speak. Apart from being particularly good as an aperitif, it can also be served with shellfish and Asian cuisine.
