Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.
50 / 50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, raised mostly in wood, from estate vineyards in the Aube. Disgorged October 7th 2014. Dosage: 3 g/l.
Yellow-gold. Vanilla cream custard, forest blackberries and raspberry compote in ultra-violet. The acidity is trebly and citric and cuts like the prow of a ship. The finish rings out: those berry tart notes resonate with the acoustics of cathedral. Now – 2020+.
Yellow-gold. The white florality of ’08 and oh what fruit! Texturally he’s velouté, with a downy, sun-drenched ripeness. Pulsates with the energy of the vintage. Drink it over a couple days and the fruit pulls back just enough to reveal the clay-limestone terroir underneath. Now – 2020+.
