Serge Mathieu, Brut Millésimé Aube 2008

100% Pinot Noir from 11 h/a of vineyards in Avirey-Lingey.  Raised in stainless steel and enamel tank.  Full malo.  Aged 6 years on the lees, then one more year in bottle.  Dosage: 6.2 g/l.  Current release.

Yellow-gold.  Scented: blossomy on entry, then pungent and earthy … périgords, my favorite.  Gossomer for an Aube with ’08s miraculous energy underneath.  The yellow and red fruits have purity, depth and detail.  The mousse is first-rate.  Classy all the way through.  Drinking well now.  Now – 2020+.
