Fluteau, Brut Millésimé ‘Cuvée Symbiose’ Aube 2005

Fluteau Symbiose 2005 #1

50% Chardonnay; 50% Pinot Noir.  From Gye-Sur-Seine in the Aube.  Raised in stainless steel.  100% malolactic fermentation.  Dosage: 9 g/l.

Yellow-gold.  Intricate and pixelated on the nose: detailed notions of fruit kernel, botanical herbs and cool narcissus.  Incisive and youthfully imploded in the mouth: intensely mineralic with stony pineapple cut.  Coiled like a spring; so much so it feels wrung out.  Aromatically à point but the palate trails behind.  Needs time.  Aube in nebulae form.  One to cellar and revisit.  Now – 2020+.
