COLMANT BRUT RESERVE NV:
Pinot Noir 52%, Chardonnay 48% (Franschhoek, Robertson and Elgin). 20% of the blend is made of reserve wine from the previous vintages and 10% of the base wine is barrel fermented. This wine spends a minimum of 30 months on the lees at a consistent temperature of 14C before degorgement.
A subtle pale gold colour in line with a very delicate and elegant nose. The aroma has a gentle spicy toastiness with a lemony and yeasty perfume, followed by more mature fruit. There is plenty of freshness and crispness on the palate with good acidity which perfectly balances the yeasty depth, bready flavours and ample structure. The finish is long and smooth. Will develop nicely over time.
