Michel Loriot, Brut Blanc de Noirs Cuvée Réserve Festigny Non Vintage

Loriot Reserve NV100% estate-grown Pinot Meunier from Festigny, with at least half of the blend made up of older reserves.  Dosage: 10 g/l.  Raised without malolactic fermentation.  Current release.

Yellow-gold.  Carnal on entry: pastis, sorghum, dark rye and spice.  Corporeal, sweetly-nutty, old-vine sève: quince, pear, singed macadamia and almond.  Structured, persistent and long, with incisive minerality at the end.  A robust Festigny, rich in character.  Plenty of substance to age well.  Now – 2019.
