Guiborat Fils, Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Cramant Non Vintage

Guiborat BdB NV

100% Chardonnay, 30 year old vines from three grand cru climat, Cramant-Les Bergeries, Chouilly-Les Mont Aigu and Les Caurés.  Raised in stainless steel.  Full malo.  Dosage: 7 g/l.  Disgorged: September 2012.

Pale gold.  Extrovert on entry, just delighted to see you, one of those wines whose aromas greet one from across the room the moment the cork is popped.   Pie crust, nuts and smoke.   The palate is textural with grand cru impeccability, green apple and lemon curd, and could benefit from another year in bottle to catch up to the nose.  Penetrating length.  Heady and seductive, this Côte des Blancs.  Now – 2020+.
