Nicolas Maillart Champagne Brut Platine
DecanterBlind tasted by Michael Edwards Simon Field MWTim Hall(at Decanter's July 2017 Grower Champagne Panel Tasting, 28 Feb 2017)Part of Great value Champagne made by growers – panel tasting results ME: Opulent and finessed. SF: Fulsome colour and temperamentally big-boned , this is an impressive example. The six grams of residual sugar finely knit into a texture of ripe, red-berried fruit. The finish has an ethereal poise, brought down to earth by just a hint of spice. TH: Immediately vital in the mouth. Very chewy and demanding a serious champagne but pretty exciting. Citrus character but with complex fruit and a pretty lingering finish. I like this!
Wine EnthusiastWith vines on the Montagne de Reims, this producer has a good line in Pinot Noir, which forms 85% of the blend. The wine is rich while well balanced and ripe. Now with just the right amount of bottle aging, it is full in the mouth, showing attractive apple and ripe pear flavors. The aftertaste is soft and fresh.
Wine SpectatorRefined and creamy, with focused notes of crushed white cherry, pastry cream, fleur de sel and orchard blossom. Mouthwatering acidity and accents of grated ginger and lemon zest hold sway on the finish. Elegant. Disgorged January 2015. Drink now through 2020. 100 cases imported.
