Imported by Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.
74% Pinot Noir, 26% Pinot Meunier. 2008 base vintage. One gram of residual sugar (not dosage). Disgorgement: spring 2012.
Yellow-gold. Savory and authoritative: oyster liquor, shiso, sourdough starter, blackberry, loomi. Ample, well-colored matière that belies the absence of dosage. Finishes articulate, saline and quite mineralic. Bone-dry terroir expression without being dour or anorectic. Pixelated Ambonnay. Now – 2018.
