The Baron D’Auvergne Champagne house, nestled in Bouzy, in the heart of the Montagne de Reims region, has a history dating back several centuries. They are a small negotiant house, growing and buying grapes. Bouzy is a Grand Cru village, one of the highest-rated vineyards in Champagne, and well known for the quality of its Pinot Noir grapes, perfect for the creation of this cuvee.
The Champagne Baron D’Auvergne Fine Fleur is a Blanc de Noirs, made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes, and aged on lees for 36 months, resulting in its complex flavors and delicate effervescence. The dosage is only 9 g/l RS, creating a Brut style.
On the nose this Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru reveals a symphony of aromas. Expect notes of ripe red fruits like raspberries, toasted brioche, and a hint of almond. On the palate, it is rich and full-bodied, with a fine mousse and a balanced acidity that brings freshness and a lively character to the wine. The finish is long, with a lingering taste of honeyed fruit and a hint of spice.
Food pairing: Blanc de Noir champagnes have a robust character and complex flavors, which make them versatile companions to rich seafood dishes like lobster or scallops. It also complements the earthy flavors of a mushroom risotto, and for a classic pairing, try it with Comté or Brie cheese.
