RILLY LA MONTAGNE

CHAMPAGNE HUBERT PAULET

CHAMPAGNE HUBERT PAULETA domain of 8.25 ha. Founded at the beginning of the 20th century, the property developed in the 1930s, with Hubert Paulet, creator of the brand. Installed in 1998, it is today Olivier Paulet, his grandson, who runs the House. Much appreciated this Champagne Premier Cru brut rosé Vintage 2006, with a pretty brick pink dress, charmer, concentrated nose where dominate blueberry, strawberry and rose, particularly tasty, of a beautiful length in mouth, a very gourmet champagne. The Premier Cru brut Pinot noir 2004, with a golden hue, with discreet notes of honey, walnuts and strawberry, combines freshness and structure, a wine full of aromas. Always well made, this Champagne Premier Cru Risléus 2004, 47% Chardonnay, 33% Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir, all in mouth, expresses a beautiful complexity of aromas, dominated by apricot and fresh flowers, a suave Champagne, spicy in final. Nice Premier Cru Vintage 2004, 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot noir and 20% Pinot meunier, persistent, both fine and structured, harmonious in mouth, complex and fruity, with a very nice finish, with delicate notes of honeysuckle and dried apricot. "The very last vintage 2012 is quite different from 2004: more on minerality and uprightness". And this Premier Cru Extra Brut Tradition is just as charming, unadjusted, naturally bouqueté, with this pretty nervousness, which combines structure and finesse, a very fresh, elegant cuvée, perfect as an aperitif.
