Champagne Janisson Baradon Non Dose NV (Champagne, France)
12%, Cork, £31
A pickup from a recent excursion to Berry Brother’s St James St shop, I’ve quoted directly from BBR’s production notes above, with little to add other than that the back label suggests sushi as the correct food match. Given the fragrant and rather pure style, I reckon they’ve nailed that recommendation – kingfish nori rolls ahoy!
Ultimately a fine and wonderfully energetic sort of Champagne, it is perhaps a little light and pretty to really bowl you over, yet that purity really deserves some respect. Lovely stuff.
Score: 17.8/20, 92/100
Would I buy it? Again? Absolutely.
