Concernant le Champagne Mailly Grand Cru L'Intemporelle Grand Cru 2012
L’Intemporelle GRAND CRU 2012 from Maison MAILLY is a magical blend of fruit from carefully selected parcels, made in a seductive, well balanced style. A blend of the vintage’s most refined Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir (40%), especially Chardonnay grapes from the best plots and more elegant Pinot Noir grapes.
This cuvée is utterly seductive, and has a brilliant golden colour, with fine and regular bubbles. The nose is an elegant combination of fruity, floral and mineral notes. The palate shows a freshness tempered by just sufficient vinosity for a creamy, supple attack, giving way to delicate flavours of lusciously ripe fruit aromas of Mirabelle plums and citrus, perfectly blended in a tasty, persistent mouth-feel.
Available on the most reknowed restaurants, this champagne is ideal for the aperitif in adding a touch of class to those taste-tempting canapés. Equally at ease with a sit-down meal and particularly recommended with roasted scallops, line-fished sea-bass in a salt or clay crust, or a turbot cooked any way you like.
This is a rare cuvée, whose every bottle is numbered.
