Yves Ruffin, Brut Extra Premier Cru D’Avenay-Val d’Or Non Vintage

Ruffin Extra NV

Envoyer Imports, Laguna Hills CA.

80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir from premier cru sites in D’Avenay-Val d’Or. While not declared at vintage, this is all 2008.  Raised in a single acacia foudre.  Dosage: 3 g/l.  Organic/BIO since 1971.  2013 release.

Yellow-gold.  Plum-blossomy, gelatinous like a veal shank and I like the push-pull between the rich and the pointed.  Blushing peach and the sweet-smoke of bacon and the finish is spot on.  Now.
