Champagne Blanc de Blancs ‘Opale’ Brut, Mousse

Really just a teensy amount available, but this was surprisingly good. It comes from a site called Les Varosse and it is all from the ‘07 vintage, disgorged January ‘11. It’s cool fresh and jasmine-y; very white, white flowers, white tea; a lovely Summer Champagne, sheer and buoyant, but with a strikingly long finish. The schist seems to give it an almost Riesling-y cast. Diaphanous but determined.
