Champagne Devaux Grande Reserve Brut
|France, Champagne, Aube
Firm, exhibiting a brassy mineral edge to the apple and sauerkraut flavors. Needs about six months to settle down.
Devaux makes a yeasty, bubbly, straight-ahead style of Champagne. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tart and tastes mostly of green apples, with just a faint hint of toast in the finish. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing particularly distinctive here, but it is well-made, refreshing and crisp through a clean finish.
