Fine delicate bubbles
It has generous, rich flavors of ripe apple, spice and butter, with an attractive doughy aroma
A lingering finish, It’s deep and complex with a smooth texture
These two excellent sparkling wines produced just outside France's Champagne region, the Blanc de Blancs Brut and the Chardonnay Tradition Brut, are superb wine bargains. Both are cleanly made, dry wines with good effervescence, medium body, and remarkable flavor, crispness, and quality. The N.V. Blanc de Blancs Brut is lighter and more frothy, whereas the Chardonnay Tradition Brut is a fuller, creamier-textured style of sparkling wine. Both are dry, delicious, and worth buying by the case. 87. Points by Robert Parker
|The World of Charles de Fère. Where wine becomes something different, something special. Wine with a secret spirit so exciting that you can actually see it. Thoughts that last but a moment, the time required to float to the lip of your glass and attain freedom from earthly limits. A taste you can feel.
The secret of sparkling wines is the blend, whether they are from Champagne or other regions of France. This is the winemaker’s art. It is the choices he makes that determines what is often referred to as the House style. The style of Charles de Fère is to voluntarily refuse territorial limits, building close partnership relations with growers so that we can select cuvées from northerly vineyards for their freshness and elegance, together with cuvées from southern vineyards for ripe fruit, body and smoothness. This bold approach adds finesse, structure, and a complex harmony of flavors that makes Charles de Fère what it is today.
