For the next two issues our Masterclass is taking a break from culinary delights to focus on something equally essential to wellbeing and vitality: Champagne. Trade-a-Boat was lucky enough to receive an invitation to learn from Maritimo brand partner G.H. Mumm, who sent their Australian ambassador along with a range of limited edition and exclusive releases.
RSRV Rosé Foujita
RSRV Rosé Foujita is a blend of Chardonnays from Cramant and Avize (30 per cent) and Pinot Noirs from the Aÿ, Bouzy and Verzenay regions. Grand Cru red wine from Ambonnay is added to the blend to bring out fruity aromas. The wine is aged for four years in oak barrels that add notes of vanilla with nuances of pastries.
The richness of Rosé Foujita allows for a wide range of food pairing. Grilled red meat, salmon marinated with cranberries and creamy bavarois with berries are ideal options. It is one of the few Rosé wines that can be enjoyed throughout a whole meal.
RSRV Blanc de Blancs 2013
Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from Chardonnays produced in Cramant, which is situated in the heart of the Côte des Blancs area.
RSRV Blanc de Blancs 2013 is fresh and delicate with a creaminess acquired over a minimum four years of ageing, making it an ideal aperitif champagne. It pairs exceptionally well with Moreton Bay Bugs, oysters and scallop carpaccio as well as creamier white fish and spring vegetables.
2013 is widely considered to be an excellent vintage for Chardonnay in the French Champagne region, evidenced by Blanc de Blancs' worldwide critical acclaim.
