Wine Review: Camille Saves ‘Carte Blanche’ Champagne NV

The Camille Saves truly stood out at the recent Champagne tasting hosted by Federal Wines. Out of a field of many great Champagnes, this one made an impression and had Glenn and me circling back to the table for a second taste.

The persistent bubbles bring to the nose notes of buttered toast, apple, and citrus. There is something slightly lemony about this Champagne, which I detected both at the Champagne tasting and while enjoying the wine at home. Flint, stone, and minerals round out the nose.  Excellent texture, lasting bubbles, and a long, pleasant finish.
