A seductive mouthful
Charles de Cazanove Tête de Cuvée NV received five stars in Cuisine’s recent Champagne tasting. It’s a smart package and at $49.95, represents excellent value too. Muted aromatics presage a seductive mouthful, with citrus, nougat and light yeastiness wrapped in a soft texture and a fine mousse. A touch of sweetness lends roundness to the palate, and freshness is maintained all the way. Bennett & Deller Wine Merchants, phone 09 378 9463.
