The Ace of Spades Brut Gold Champagne in the famous gold pewter bottle is complex,elegant, refined and full-bodied, with great depth and a bouquet that is both fresh and lively. It is from a trio of vintages from some of the most lauded terroirs in Champagne. It was voted No.1 Champagne in the world in a blind tasting of 1,000 brands in 2010. Its creamy palate is crisp and delicate and exudes flavors of cherries, peach, apricots, ginger, lemon zest, smoky minerality, vanilla, honey and hints of matured brioche, leading into a long and silky finish. Ideal as an aperitif or pairs perfectly with seared scallops, roasted quail and fresh water fish.
