2006 Paul Etienne St Germain Sublime Champagne Brut Blending 50% Chardonnay (Cote des Blancs) and 50% Pinot Noir (Montagne de Reims) This Prestige Vintage Cuvee is the flagship Champagne of PAUL-ETIENNE SAINT GERMAIN. Blended in equal measure with Chardonnay from Avize and Pinot Noir from Verzenay, this wine expresses the terroir and noble character of Grand-Cru Champagne. Pale gold in color with brilliant highlights, the wine exhibits a delicate mousse while forming a stream of fine bubbles. The nose is both floral and fresh, revealing notes of pistachio and hazelnut. The mouth reveals an elegant, fresh and complex wine that is signature Grand Cru. Floral and spice aromas accompany a long finish. For a moment of privilege, Sublime exemplifies the essence and passion of revered Champagnes.
