Plot tastings of 2017-wine and 2014-champagne
We have tasted two coming-up Tange-Gerard singles.
The wine of 2017
A first trial of the still wine from the grapeharvest last year.
At the moment the wine gives a floral and feminine impression. Almost too pleasant for a champagne to be? The wine does not feel very acid which can often be the case in a warm year.
Within the next weeks, the wine will be bottled and placed in the caves where it will fermentate for the second time.
Next one in line this morning is a manually disgorged Tange-Gerard champagne from 2014.
In fact, it is the first time we have tasted this, since we tried the original wine im spring 2015.
The new champagne has a surprising note of cocoa on the nose that can further be recognized in the slightly toasty taste that blends into the palette of different tastes that constitutes this champagne.
The acidity is present yet pleasant. Be prepared to welcome a zéro dosage in the family.
