Jean Noel Haton 'Extra' Brut Champagne
Haton is one of the lesser known but well established Champagne houses and the 4th generation family is part of the top 30 producers of Champagne, in volume. Even though they produce a larger amount than most, the quality is assured as each grape variety and plot are vinified separately in more than 100 stainless steel tanks. Final blending is undertaken by father and son to maintain a high quality level and consistency of each cuvée.
Haton Extra Brut is a delightful golden yellow with fabulous effervescence that forms a delicate and persistent chain of fine bubbles. The nose is elegant and fine, with notes of fresh fruit (redcurrant, peach and apricot) and citrus fruit (grapefruit and orange). The palate is fresh and generous and the finish is as elegant as every fine champagne should be.
“With some attractive, toasty age, this is a full and rich Champagne. It’s finely balanced apple and citrus flavors are layered with hints of almonds. The “Extra” in the name refers to the range of wines from Haton rather than the level of dryness.” 91pts Wine Enthusiast
