Champagne CH de l’Auche Sélection Brut is a great, well rounded, fruit forward house Champagne.
Grapes for this cuvée are grown in the lieu-dit of "Auche" around the village of Janvry which lies just to the west of Reims. Firstly they are pressed in small stainless steel vats before being transferred to ceramic vats for 12 hours to allow for natural clarification of the juice. Next the clarified juice is moved to large steel containers where it remains from September to March during which time fermentation takes place before finally being bottled for the secondary fermentation and lees ageing. Dosage is between 9g and 10g per litre to give a richness of profile and this Brut Sélection is comprised of 60% wine from 2017 with 40% reserve wines from 2014-2016.
Wonderful aromatic notes of juicy pear and apricot on the nose are underpinned by more mature aromas of hazelnut and fresh bread. The texture is creamy and full bodied with well balanced acidity and plenty of bubbles! A highly versatile style of champagne which could accompany canapés, mushroom based starters, cheese and all manner of poultry dishes. Although, simply sipping it as an aperitif works very well too.
