“A” by Arras Premium Cuvée NV – House of Arras

19.79£

Medium straw in colour with a bright gold hue, the A by Arras Premium Cuvee NV has a crystal clear appearance with a fine and persistent bead. A complex and inviting aroma with nuances of forest floor, nougat, exotic spice and lanolin. The palate has opulent flavours reminiscent of lychee, butter sautéed mushroom, natural yoghurt and fresh oyster. This elegantly structured wine has great persistence of flavour and exquisite balance of dosage, tannin and acidity. An excellent example of a non-vintage style, exhibiting beautiful poise and a refreshing, natural acidity on the finish. Predominately Pinot Noir, which gives the wine red fruit plushness that ages to lychee like characters, richness and a great backbone. Chardonnay is blended which creates a great elegance of structure and finesse, balancing the richness nature of Pinot Noir. Chardonnay (with age and some degree of oak) expresses the toast, mushroom & biscuit characters, whilst the Pinot Meunier is forward with floral / aromatic softness and tends to fill the middle palate. It matures relatively rapidly compared to the other varieties and enhances wine age / complexity, often described as having ‘soft acidity’ which means more fruit driven and soft / approachable notes.
