The 2016 'Cuvée Ernestine' is another beautiful showing from Veuve Doussot. This instantly begins to impress with its wonderful aromatics of apples and poached pear along with buttered brioche, white florals, salty minerals and hints of crushed hazelnut. On the palate this is broad shouldered, with notable depth, yet it remains precise and beautifully balanced displaying a lovely combination of acidity and minerality that persists through the finish. Overall, this is a fabulous Champagne that is drinking remarkably well today, but should also offer another decade of enjoyment.
