Alfred Basely Champagne Brut NV
Alfred Basely - Champagne - France
This deliciously dry and elegant Champagne is made by a small grower located in the village of Champillon. Look for ripe lemony citrus notes with white flower, mineral and bread dough complexities. The bubbles are fine and persistent, and the finish long and clean. Producing about 5000 cases per year, 1000 of which come into the U.S., Alfred Basely is a terrific find for those of us who love to drink good Champagne.
The sparkling wines from this special area have long been associated with excellence and magnificent flavors, and much of their success has been down to the careful blending of fine grape varietals in order to achieve spectacular results. Most commonly, Champagne wines use both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietal grapes in more or less equal measures, often boosted by a small quantity of Pinot Meunier for extra bite. The Chardonnay varietal grapes offer their acidity and flavor to the bottle, and help with the dryness associated with quality in this type of wine.
