Forget-Brimont, Brut 1er Cru Ludes Non Vintage

Forget-Brimont Brut NV

40% Pinot Noir; 40% Pinot Meunier; 20% Chardonnay.  From premier cru vineyards in Montagne de Reims (Ludes, Chigny-les-Roses and Villers-Allerande). Full malolactic fermentation. Aged four years on the lees, another 6 months after disgorment. Dosage: 9 g/l. This is Lot # L. 41.  2008 base vintage.  2014 release.

Yellow-gold. Barkier and crustier than the Rosé, more fruit than berry, a coppery apricot.  Textural and pillowy and the finish is iodé, a walk on the ocean blue.  Now.
