Cedric Bouchard Val Vilaine Inflorescence Brut Blanc de Noirs 2009 and 2008
This was stunning. Beautiful balance, fine bead, and delicate mousse. Faint aromas of pears, and some fresh brioche. The flavor were delicate, clean, and refreshing with a pure beam of ripe pear throughout. I detected a bit of zingy ginger in the finish. Well worth the money, an undeniably special bottle of bubbles. Vintage 2009 is WA93+; 2008 is WA92. Consistently high standard Champagne.
