Louis Sostene, Brut 1er Cru ‘Cuvée LS’ Le-Mesnil-Sur-Oger Non Vintage

Louis Sostene Cuvee LS NV #1Encepagement: 50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier.  2008 base vintage, with 30% reserve wines from 2007.  At least two+ years on the lees before disgorgement.  The winemaker is Pierre Gonet from champagne house Philippe Gonet in le Mesnil-Sur-Oger; the vines are from Chigny-les-Roses and owned by his wife.  This is lot#L110612.  Current release.

Primrose with gilded hints.  Gushing and extrovert, expressive of its Pinot Noir: boulangerie and autolytic flavors.  Sumptuous middle of poached apple and gougère.  Yet for all its richness this is ’08 explicit, with hawthorn and chalk detail.  Vivacious Chigny-les-Roses.  Now – 2016+.
