Champagne Faucheron-Gavroy : Cuvée Brut Réserve Grand Cru
Pale gold color with a fine cord and soft effervescence.
The nose is mature and delicious on butter brioche, yellow peach in syrup and candied fruits (pineapple, apple, grape). After aeration, appreciable notes of blackcurrant and strawberry coulis reinforce the complexity of this gourmet champagne.
The palate is round and smooth with well-integrated acidity. We find the same delicacy on the palate with notes of pineapple and candied apples as well as a buttery touch with a finish on chalk and straw.
A fruity and very gourmet champagne, it easily accompanies a pan-fried foie gras or a quail stuffed with grapes.
