Yann Alexandre, Brut Nature ‘Roche Mère’ Courmas Non Vintage

Yann Alexandre Brut Nature NV #1

Imported by Free Run, Seattle WA.

40% Pinot Meunier; 35% Chardonnay; 25% Pinot Noir. From 6 h/a of vineyards across nine communes, including Courmas. No added dosage. 2013 release.

White gold. Bright and precise, accented in fish sauce and shitake, subtly suffused with chalk. Texturally balanced by sheer ripeness of fruit. Sushi-knife cut. Penetrating, mineralic finish. Showing well now, more ringent than he was on release. Now – 2018+.
