Itís the season - just give me an excuse to pop a cork!

Boizel 1996
Joyau de France Brut



This is amongst my Top picks in vintage Champagne
Boizel is a smaller Champagne house hence not seen in the same light as Bollinger and Billecart

However it too has a high Pinot Noir content and oak treatment, this would explain the forest flour and strawberry hints on the nose.
This wine is complex for Champagne and it finishes creamy dry and long
With a hint of nuts at the very end.

This wine is well worth tracking down


Michael Lillis I love my wine and food
