Alexandre Le Brun, Brut Tradition Monthelon

Le Brun Tradition NV

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

One third each Chardonnay, Meunier, Pinot Noir, blending fruit from Monthelon, Mancy, Sézanne.  2012 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 peony and a brothy leesy mojo. Mineral accents on the honeysuckle and rusty tangerine as the wine fleshes out.  The finish spreads and glows without ever losing focus.  Now.
