55% Pinot Meunier; 30% Chardonnay; 15% Pinot Noir. From Courmas in the Montagne de Reims. Aged five years in Alexandre cellars. Dosage: 10 g/l. Unknown disgorgement date or base vintage; current release.
Pale yellow. Vivid, velouté nose: pear and citrus fruit, plum blossom, buttered pumpernickel, brewer’s yeast, salt. More satiny in the mouth, suave, open, succulent: greengage and melon fruit dusted in oat-cracker. Expressive, mineral finish. At once adorned and explicit … quite enchanting. Now – 2016.
