Description

With reference to the monks of Clairvaux who were present from 1194 in Colombé-le-Sec, these champagnes are made in an original building of the Abbey. Dating back to the 12th century, the Cellier aux Moines has been classified as a historical monument since 1919. Today, the Calon-Egger family has taken over and obtained naming rights of the cellar. Planted on clay-limestone soils typical in the Côte des Bar, two thirds of the vineyards are Pinot Noir and the rest is Chardonnay. The domain is a member of the Association of Abbey Wines (l'Association des Vins d’Abbayes) and offers a rural cottage to rent.

Un 100% pinot noir au nez discret de fruits jaunes. La bouche, dense et pulpeuse, est dominée par une texture crayeuse et minérale. À tenter avec une côte de cochon et écrasée de pommes de terre montée au beurre.

La robe de ce rosé se décline en un vermillon framboise clair. L’olfaction complexe entraîne des arômes de coulis de fraise, groseille, mûre et tarte aux fraises. La bouche fringante décuple une mâche vineuse de fruits rouges, pomelos, groseille à maquereau, et s'étire sur une finale de grenadine. À ouvrir sur un gratin de fruits frais en sabayon, coulis de framboise, pain de Gènes

Gault&Millau recenzija
Compact, concentrated yellow fruits and citrus fruits like a fizzy vitamin C fizzy tablet before adding water, with white flowers and spices. With bright large bubbles and a fresh whipped mousse, the mouth is even more floral than the nose (lime blossom, thick lemongrass), creamy richness with lively reductive maturity, sapide and saline to complement lactic based dishes and sauces, staying pure and freshly creamy.

From the creamy lemon meringue pie nose, lightly brûlé, strong bubbles and mousse arrive on the vinous palate, staying surprisingly fresh and vivacious until the end. A lovely vintage expression, gourmet, and the lemon meringue pie returns at the end in time for dessert !

The robe is very pale straw with reflections of gold leaf. Juicy drops of baked pear and apple on the nose reflect the southern Champagne ripeness, with stoney freshness. A light style and (sweetly) salty, with everything in place, a wine for all occasions and to share happily at the table.
