G. H. Mumm RSRV Blanc de Noirs Brut Grand Cru 2008, Champagne, NZD $149

100% pinot noir from Grand Cru vineyards and with seven years en tirage. Rich, creamy and mouth-filling champagne with obvious bready, aldehydic yeast autolysis character. A big and quite complex wine that makes a bold statement. (Mytik)
