Tasting Notes by Pauli Antoine. This Angel Champagne appeals to the style conscious consumer. You will love its bottle presentation, packaging and sensitive pricing.  I  fell in love with the “White Angel”.  Angel is a cuvée blended from three different grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.  Pauli Antoine at The Champagne Lounge at ProWine Asia Singapore April 2016 . Angel Champagne

Champagne Brut: The colour is intense, the nose is fresh with  a precision to the pear, green apple, white flowers and mineral aromas. Long and elegant finish.

“The White Angel” Champagne Brut Rose: The colour is delicate while the nose is intense with layers of small red berries, pomegranate, strawberries, and floral bouquet. The finish is delicate.

Champagne Brut Vintage: The colour is intense with fruity aromas. There is
the depth and richness of brioche, quince, pear, and toasted nut aromas. This wine has a wonderful length and sublime finish.
