Yann Alexandre, Brut Sélection Courmas Non Vintage

Yann Alexandre Selection NV #1

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.
