Fine fizz

Boll & Cie Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs NV, Champagne, AUD $99

Boll is new in the Australian market. The two wines I’ve tasted are very high quality. This pure chardonnay non-vintage spent five years on lees and is rich, toasty and dry. The creamy, refined texture is a highlight. There are green apple flavours and the dosage is moderate, leaving a refreshing aftertaste. (Cork)
