Gaston Chiquet Special Club Millesime

gaston_chiquet_champTangy mandarin scents with talc and mineral notes in the forefront and lemon rinds and a cool impression overall considering the warmer 2005 vintage –still starched and tightly fit like an Etruscan arch to last and last. Chalky yet round, floral and cherried yet mineral. As it opens up it rounds out to Bosque pear and pastry notes.Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, July 2013

Chiquet’s 2005 Brut Special Club is laced with dried pears, cherries, spices, mint and orange peel. This is a fairly soft, open Champagne. Like so many 2005s, it appears to be best suited for drinking over the next few years. Sweet floral and spiced notes are woven together nicely on the attractive, soft finish. The Special Club is 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir. Disgorgement date: June 2012.
