2015 Copinet Rouge Still Champagne "Coteaux Champenois" Champagne, France
Copinet’s cherry colored 2015 EA Coteaux Champenois Rouge offers a fine, elegant, fruity, toasty and after a while, also floral bouquet that indicates freshness and finesse in equal measure. Beautiful dark cherry and blackthorn intermix with hints of violet and licorice as well as toast and dark chocolate, but everything is discreet and fresh. Smooth and round but dry, fresh and well-structured on the palate, this is full-bodied, intense and very elegant Pinot Noir sourced in a lieu-dit named La Croix Maître Anne. Picked by hand and strictly selected, the wine was aged for 12 months in new 300-liter oak barrels. Showing good, stimulating mineral freshness and fine tannin structure on the finish, this is a remarkably good red wine from the Champagne region..
