Introducing the 2002 De Venoge Champagne Brut Select Cordon Bleu, a remarkable vintage Champagne that captures the essence of elegance and sophistication. This exquisite white wine, hailing from the renowned Champagne region of France, is a true testament to the artistry and craftsmanship of the esteemed producer, De Venoge.

In appearance, this Champagne displays a radiant lemon-gold hue that immediately catches the eye. Its effervescence is alive and vibrant, with an enticing stream of delicate bubbles dancing gracefully in the glass.

On the nose, a complex bouquet unfolds, revealing an enticing array of aromas. Notes of apple, Asian pear, and apple compote intertwine harmoniously, creating a symphony of fruitiness. A subtle hint of lemon zest adds a touch of brightness, while a distinct chalky, limestone mineral undertone adds depth and complexity.

As the first sip is taken, the bubbles come alive on the palate, exuding freshness and liveliness. The flavors of apple and lemon citrus take center stage, their crispness and vibrancy perfectly balanced by a creamy mousse and texture. The mineral flavors contribute a distinct sense of terroir, reflecting the unique characteristics of the Champagne region.

After spending more than 15 years in the bottle, this vintage Champagne has developed beautifully, acquiring the qualities reminiscent of aged White Burgundy. The result is a wine that is bright, energetic, and full of life from start to finish. It is a true delight to drink, leaving a lasting impression and an insatiable desire for more.
