The Blue Top is a Pinot Noir-driven Champagne, with the approximate blend being 70% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Meunier with around 35% of reserve wines making up the final Cuvée .The grapes are sourced from circa 70 different Cru across the Champagne region and the Champagne is aged for around three years before disgorgement, release and shipment.To the eye it is crystal clean and clear, very pale straw yellow with emerald reflections while its nose is powerful and generous, with woody and spicy notes and is characterised by great aromatic richness with a blend of toasted, buttery and vinous aromas. On the palate it is a bold and assertive, yet balanced and not overpowering Champagne, with vivacious citrus fruits, hints of red fruits and creamy toasty notes followed by a long complex, clean finish.
