Alexandre Le Brun, Brut Tradition Monthelon Non Vintage

Le Brun Tradition NV

Imported by K&L Wine Merchants, Redwood CA.

One third each Chardonnay, Meunier, Pinot Noir, blending fruit from Monthelon, Mancy, Sézanne.  2011 base vintage and 30% reserve wines.  Raised in steel and barrel.  Dosage: 8 g/l.  RM 29207-01 L – 0410.

Yellow-gold.  Contemporary in character and the push pull between butter and stone is intelligently judged.  Leads with a brothy leesy mojo and mineral accents on the pears and reggiano.  Honeysuckle and rusty tangerine as the wine fleshes out.  The finish spreads and glows without ever losing focus.  Now.
