Champagne J. M Tissier – Argos 2008

Guide VERON des Champagnes 2016

(around 25 euros per bottle)

Original and luxurious presentation.

Aspect : 

·        Golden, dense and bright
·        Very fine bubbles.
·        Bead of bubbles fine and persistent on the periphery of the flute.
Nose :
·        Generous and touching.
·        Radiant aromas of nice ripe red fruits (cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant and blackberry), punctuated by delicate notes of spices (pepper and liquorice), heady signatures of the Pinot Meunier (50%) from Chavot-Courcourt.
·        The maturity of the Champagne then carries us, caressing, with its seductive fragrances of honey, beeswax and pastries, result of the ageing on laths of the bottles for 5 years, with patient autolysis of the prise de mousse yeasts, before disgorgement.
·        The Chardonnay (50%), carefully selected in the well exposed plots of Pierry, Moussy and Epernay, then unveils its whole subtlety, with harmonious scents of apple and pear compote, apricot and raisin, underlined by a touch of exotic fruits.

Palate :

·        Life-giving and dense opening.
·        The mouth then becomes gourmet and deep, supported by an enveloping warmth, allowed by 6 months of ageing, in vats, of the base wines on fine lees, by the judicious fulfillment of the malolactic fermentation and by an accurate dosage, with 9 g/L of sugar added at disgorgement.
·        Tasty finish.
·        Great length on the palate.

Jacques Tisser has been able to put all of his oenological talent in the service of the great year 2008, to offer us an all-new high-level cuvée Argos 2008.

To taste during meals with a wolffish in puff pastry, for example.
