Joseph Perrier Champagne Josephine 2004
Joseph Perrier is a well-known vintner that makes a Champagne for every taste and budget. One of their best current releases is the Josephine '04, a beautiful gold-colored wine blended mostly from Chardonnay grapes. The bubble is vibrant and explosive, making this Champagne dance on the tongue. It has a complex flavor profile, with notes of tropical fruit and vanilla, and a bouquet that's fruit forward with a hint of buttered bread. The finish is long and the acid well-balanced. Josephine has also been given scores of over 95 points by a number of well-respected wine critics.
