René-Henri Coutier, Brut Tradition Grand Cru Ambonnay

Cattier BdB NV

70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, all grand cru Ambonnay fruit. Base vintage 2008 with reserve wines.  Raised in steel.  Full malo. Dosage 6 g/l.  Disgorged January 2012.

Yellow-gold.   The flavors unfurl as wind-swept flags of maturation: rose candy, toasted grain and forest underbrush.  Fleshy red-berries of the Montagne de Reims through the middle; gingery spice and salted sweet 100s at the end.  Now – 2020.
