So, despite hearing of the existence of this 100% Arbane Champagne from Moutard a while back, I only finally found a bottle… in Madeira! So we had this for pre-flight lunch. Overall an interesting Champagne to try, but not a great vintage wine. Fruity and rounded, with comparatively moderate acidity. Pale lemon with a medium bead. Fruity white peach, a touch of banana and of yellow apple. Some creamy, cheesy lees complexity with a touch of nut. Honey complexity, but still quite simple. On the palate, rounded white peach and banana. Medium length. Fruity. Rounded. Approachable.
