Francois Montand Blanc de Blancs Brut NV
"Peach and pear nose and palate, balanced and dry, with hint of lemon curd. Good value for under a tenner." - Sally Easton MW, November 2016
François Montand’s passion for winemaking began in his family’s vineyard in Champagne. During World War II, he decided to make the dangerous journey from the occupied north to Jura which was in the Free Zone, taking a few vines and his knowledge of Champagne with him, and he never looked back.
White flowers and citrus fruit offer an elegant nose. The palate is creamy and smooth, with a freshly baked bread note derived from the wines extended ageing. Notes of apple, pear and brioche are also present. Enjoy over the next 2-3 years as an aperitif alongside amuse-bouches.
