Demarne-Frison, Brut Nature Blanc de Noirs ‘Goustan’ Aube Non Vintage

Demarne-Frison Nature Goustan

100% Pinot Noir from 1 h/a of vineyards in Ville-sur-Arce.  Hillsides are steep; the kimmeridgian soils, shallow, a blend of either white or yellow clay and limestone. Organic/BIO. Raised in used barrique for nine months.  Full malo.  Bottled without dosage. 2010 vintage, October 2012 disgorgement, 2014 release.

A deeper gilded caste compared to the corresponding Lalore.  Vinous, galvanic and clever, such is the yin-yang of snappy minerality and burnished swell. Boldly Aube, the generosity and sheer ripeness of fruit more than compensates for the lack of dosage.  Crackery and silex at the end. Think about decanting this. Now – 2020.
