Instant Présent - Champagne Lancelot Pienne
Cellaring : Now to 2028
Tasted by William Kelley in 2020: "The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Instant Present, with a dosage of 3.5 grams per liter. Brimming with inviting aromas of brioche, pear and citrus oil, it is fleshy and generous, with a charming core of fruit, lively acids and an attractive pinpoint mousse. This immediate and charming champagne will make an excellent aperitif."
