Cour Des Lys – Elegance Blanche 2010 Blanc de Blancs – Bronze Sea Breeze
18th January 2018
Congratulations to Cour Des Lys with their Elegance Blanche, (V) 2010 100% Blanc de Blancs which received a bronze medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.
A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as Sea Breeze: “Some of us love refreshing, almost very zesty style of wines. When you taste this wine you will imagine yourself standing on the beach and tasting those tiny sea drops in the air.”
Crystal clear pale yellow. The wine develops a fine, elegant and long lasting mousse as you pour it into the glass.
With lime notes and light touches of white flowers, honey and green apple aromas.
Mineral almost ‘chalky’ flavour with lime and citrus notes. As it opens up, grapefruit zest and herbaceous flavours become more precise. Pure and crisp, the complexity of this wine will also reveal a light aftertaste of coconut water on the finish. It’s a beautiful, light and extremely well-balanced wine to serve with your gourmet- or classic meals.
