Champagne Diebolt Vallois Brut Tradition
The champagne house Diebolt-Vallois is to be found in Cramant, a village in the "Côte des Blancs", whose chalky soil makes the perfect home for chardonnay vines. It is certainly one of the finest terroirs in the Champagne region and is the realm of "blanc de blancs" champagnes (champagnes made from white grapes - chardonnay).
Like an orchard in late spring, this blends floral and fruit notes of ripe apple, white cherry and apricot. There's a firm backbone of zesty acidity and underlying minerality, with a lingering hint of ginger on the finish.
A balanced champagne, perfect as an aperitif or at the beginning of the meal.
