Wine tasting notes

The family run Boizel Champagne House, established in 1834 in Epernay, has been supplying Justerini & Brooks with Sarcey for decades. This Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier blend is laid to rest in Boizel's deep cool cellars on its dead yeast cells for approximately two years before it is bottled. This gives a toasty complexity and richness to this fresh, citrus blend. The Vintage receives a further three years bottle age and is only made from red grapes (mainly Pinot Noir) resulting in a mature, dry, biscuity wine that has a long complex finish.

Tasted April 2012 - Workmanlike nose with a bit of development. Lemony and crunchy in texture even if without great complexity. Neat finish! Much more rewarding than most supermarket cuvées.

Decanter (NV)

Wonderful soft, creamy nose with good nuttiness and intensity. Well made, simple and fresh rounded style. Good creamy structure.

Vinification Notes

Sarcey Champagne has for many years been produced by the small but quality minded house of Boizel in Epernay. Aged for two to three years in cool cellars, this champagne will benefit from further cellering but is perfect for drinking immediately.
