    Winemaker Notes

    A brilliant yellow gold robe, with an effervescence of extreme finesse. An expressive nose, elegant with complex acacia, honey and brioche aromas. In the mouth, it is intense, well – balanced with a few hints of candied fruit and a beautiful length.

    A champagne for the evening. It is a marvellous accompaniment for a fine dinner or supper.

    Boizel
    Evelyne Roques – Boizel continues the tradition of women from Champagne who have inspired their house with drive and character. In 1984, , she expressed the spirit which has guided the four generations of Boizels preceding her throughout its 150 year history in the motto, "A Family, A House, A Tradition". The House was founded by August in 1834, participating in the great adventure of the beginnings of Champagne. The House gradually built up a reputation in France and abroad, for August had already understood the importance of exporting. His son Edouard had immense wine – cellars tunneled into the flank of Mont Bernon and made the first bruts of the young House. He created vintage Champagnes, some of which rest to this day in the deepest of the Boizel cellars, in the vault known as "Tésor" (Treasure). Jules further developed export markets and from 1920 onwards produced a Cuvée "Blanc de Blancs" (100% Chardonnay), a rare choice at that time. After the war, his son, René Boizel, found himself at the helm of a House which had suffered greatly… All he had left were his cellars, the loyal friendship of his customers and, as a sportsman, great reserves of energy. He restored the House to the position it had occupied before and opened up new markets. He created the new "Joyau de France" (Jewel of France) special Cuvée, of which the first vintage dates back to 1961, one of the harvests of the century. In 1972, following the premature death of René and the illness and death of his son Eric, who had wished to move into the family business , Erica Boizel herself was obliged to become the torchbearer for the House. Her daughter Evelyne, with a degree in history and a diploma in museology and her son - in – law Christophe Roques, an engineer, returned to the fold at that time, to learn the new profession that awaited them. They continued the business, and in 1994 decided to join the Boizel, Chanoine Champagne group. Their studies had destined them for different horizons from these, but the Family, the House, the Tradition… What was that we were saying about passion?

    Singularly aromatic, often sweet, and always enjoyable, Muscat never takes itself too seriously. Muscat is actually an umbrella name for a diverse set of grapes, some of which are genetically related while others are not. The two most important versions are Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains and Muscat of Alexandria, the former being of considerably higher quality. Both are grown throughout the world and can be made in a wide range of styles, from dry and aromatic wines to sweet and richly perfumed dessert wines. It is well known in Italy's Piedmont region for Moscato d’Asti, a slightly sparkling semi-sweet wine that is refreshing and low in alcohol.

    In the Glass

    Muscat wines possess intense aromatics of peaches, rose petals, geranium, orange blossom, and lychee, often with a hint of sweet spice, and always with a uniquely grapey character that is uncommon in other wines.

    Perfect Pairings

    Thanks to its naturally low alcohol levels, Muscat is a perfect match for spicy Asian cuisine, especially when the wine has a little bit of residual sugar. Off-dry Muscat can work well with lighter desserts like key lime pie and lemon meringue, while fully sweet Muscat-based dessert wines are enjoyable after dinner with an assortment of cheeses.

    Sommelier Secret

    Muscat is one of the oldest known grape varieties, dating as far back as the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Pliny the Elder wrote in the 13th century of a sweet, perfumed grape variety so attractive to bees that he referred to it as uva apiana, or “grape of the bees.” Most likely, he was describing one of the Muscat varieties.
