[ UNDERSTAND ]
A pairing between the Smoking Jacket Short Robusto cigar and Castelnau origine ES 9.0 soelera brut champagne.
by Fabrice Sommier.
This creation was invented by a true oenologist, Élisabeth Sarcelet.
The Origine ES 9.0 cuvée announces the start of a glorious voyage through the world of the perpetual reserve.
Is in honour of our cellar mistress, Élisabeth Sarcelet, the founder of this wonderful project.
Is a reference to the 2009 vintage, to which this wine belongs.
Reminds us that this cuvée is the starting point for our future Soleras.
Is a vintage with great potential due to the weather conditions, and it will be the ideal basis for building a Solera method.
This cuvée represents what is quintessential in the assemblage (blending) recognised in Champagne as the work of a goldsmith with 50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Meunier, 15% Pinot Noir and a very subtle 5 g/l dosage.
The robe is a superb yellow or with luminous golden reflections and a very thin bead (string) of fine, regular bubbles.
The nose is dense with a very delightful and powerful richness that is highly complex, aromas of yellow and white fruit, dried fruits such as almonds and apricots, honey and spices like saffron. A nose that changes all the time and opens up to different, delicate registers.
The palette starts with fresh touches of citrus fruit, like yuzu and lemons, and moves on to a hint of bergamot. A dynamic wine balancing between the vivacious and true richness. A wine with great nobility and sublime length.
Served at 10°C in a glass created for this cuvée by Lehmann Reims France.
SMOKING JACKET SHORT ROBUSTO (DOMINICAN REPUBLIC)
This module offers a Colorado robe. Superb aromas of citrus fruit with a slight vegetable touch and a tinge of intense black pepper. The palate is delicate with beautiful length full of great finesse. A tangy pairing.
