Another Folle Blanche 

This one is an assemblage of 2003 and 2008 from the Grande Champagne cru (Saint-Fort-sur-Né) and it’s fully made with Folle Blanche. It probably has some Grande Champagne 2003 in its DNA by the way. Well, let’s taste La Folle Blanche !

Colour: Amber, gold lights. Regular heavy tears.

Nose: Acacia honey. Great freshness with floral shades. Quite peppery, as the Grande Champagne 2003 and the Fins Bois 2006. Fresh butter and cereal scents. Raisins. Something like a great muesli bowl. A bit on mint and eucalyptus. Few fruity notes, especially on dried apricots. Few malted smells too. 

Palate: Very sweet texture with nice acidity on mouth length. Full of raisins. A little buttery but very spicy. Caraway, curry, a tad of paprika. Tinned plums. Fresh lemon juice. Young apricots. The mouth length is correct. A little of honey sweets aftertaste. 

Last Notes: It gets more herbal and spicier with air. Quince jam. Still on honey sweets. Menthol. Raisins. The palate is full of grape juice, raisins, and orange zest cake aromas. A bit of walnut oil. 

Well, not my best Folle Blanche ever. A great nose, a standard palate. Less convincing than my previous Grosperrin’s Folle Blanche. 

My very subjective note: 84+/100
