Two Champagne Houses at the APVSA Tasting in Washington DC

Last month I tasted wines from two champagne houses at the APVSA – Association pour la Promotion des Vins et Spiritueux en Amérique du Nord (the Association for the Promotion of Wine and Spirits in North America) wine tasting event in Washington DC. 

Champagne Vrain?Augé had one champagne for tasting, their “Tradition.” This champagne was crafted with 100% Pinot Meunier grapes. Multiple columns of tiny bubbles formed a central and circumferential mousse on the wine’s surface. The yellow colored wine had a gold hue. The champagne aged for three years and had 8 g/L dosage. The champagne had a very creamy mouthfeel and offered red berry fruits with a hint of apple. This champagne was refreshing and would make a good aperitif.

Champagne Jean Forget had two champagnes available for tasting. The tradition was a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. It had a light gold color and multiple columns of tiny bubbles formed a circumferential mousse. Apple and citrus were notable as well as a creamy mouthfeel. Use this champagne as an aperitif. 

The Jean Forget Rose had a salmon color with a pink hue. This wine was also a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. Multiple columns of tiny bubbles formed a circumferential mousse. The wine offered red berry fruits on the aroma and taste. The mouthfeel was creamy. This wine would make a good aperitif especially on Valentine’s Day.
