Grand Cru Champagne




The two wines look the same right? Well they're not. I certainly hope not because I paid a lot of money for these wines, because they both should offer quite a different taste experience. Both are from the 2nd release of VintagesOnline.

Both
1997 Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte Brut, but the difference is the site from where they came from - both from Grand Cru villages, with both being the corresponding grape. Top is from Chouilly - chardonnay grapes. Bottom from Ambonnay - pinot noir. Actually, I'm ashamed to say I don't know the exact blend, or even if this is a blend. I do believe, 98% sure, that the Chouilly is a Blanc de Blancs, and the Ambonnay is a Blanc de Noirs.
