Charles Frey, Quintessence Extra Brut, Crémant d’Alsace
(at France, 14 Jul 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2024
A lovely warm gold colour in the glass, this has notes of brioche, toasted almonds and citrus zest on the nose. The palate is dry and lively with tiny bubbles and flavours of candied lemon peel, nectarine and peach. This has structure and complexity with the flavours hinting of its age but still offering plenty of life and vibrancy. A lovely wine and great alternative to pricier Champagnes.
