Finland Independence Day – Champagne Jacquart Mosaïque Brut

6 12 2012

Finland celebrates 95th Independence Day on 6th December. Reason to taste Champagne, this time Champagne Jacquart Mosaïque Brut.

This bottle was purchased from the cruise ship; wine is not available at Alko at the moment.

THE LOOK
Light yellow with hints of white gold and a stream of fine bubbles.

THE NOSE
Aromas of fresh fruits with some orange flower. Second glass raised something close to…sweat…

THE FLAVOUR
Fresh, fills mouth with bubbles; a long fruity finish.

Facts and figures:

A blend where Chardonnay is the dominant grape
variety (35%-40%), giving Brut Mosaïque its freshness
and delicate aromas. Pinot Noir (35%-40%) adds
structure and Pinot Meunier (25% -30%) brings fruit

Alcohol: 12,5 % by volume
Extract: 29 g/l
Sugar: 9 g/l
Acidity: 6,9 g/l
Energy: 80 kcal/100 ml (340 kJ/100 ml)
Closure: natural cork

Perfect wine with whitefish roe and lightly salted whitefish (graavattu siika). Price for this Champagne is affordable. But to be honest, excellent Cava’s beat many Champagnes and they usually are half the price.

REVIEW: OVERALL GRADE 3,5/5 – BANG FOR THE BUCK +++ / +++
