Carl Edmund pointed out that Churchill considered English mustard a gentleman’s obligation, so I forced myself to the breach. The Boizel Blanc de Noirs is a great wine. Instant nose of pear and red fruit from the pinot noir. The complexity of the cuvée compounded by having 30% reserve wine added.
Besieged as I was by the mustard, the Boizel drove out the demon flavours, leaving a delicious mouthful of succulent pear, hints of honey, vivacious and pleasurable. I had to have another ham sandwich just enjoy the exorcism one more time.
Carl Edmund: “6th generation family house, Boizel’s blanc de noirs. It is 100% pinot noir, the second 100% pinot noir [of this tasting]. Of course pinot noir was a favourite of Churchill, and this was an exquisite pairing. A brut, and absolutely phenomenal.”
