Bailly-Lapierre, Brut Crémant de Bourgogne ‘Cuvée Egarade’ 2010

Bailly Lapierre Egarade NV #1

Encepagement: 58% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir.  At least two+ years on the lees for their vintage dated wines.  From the Cote d’Auxerre near Chablis.  Organic/BIO.  This is lot #L1395311.  Current release.

Pale straw.  Classically dry and estery: meyer-lemon blossom, green apple, pie crust, chantilly cream.  Nervy, earl grey tea and limestone finish.  In style a touch anodyne but the detail here is first-rate.  Lacy, fine-boned Crémant de Bourgogne.  Now – 2016.
