Ruelle-Pertois, Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Moussy 2007

Ruelle Pertois BdB 2007

Charles Neal Selections, Richmond CA.

100% Chardonnay, from estate vineyards and grand cru holdings in Cramant and Chouilly.  8 years sur lie, dosage: 7 g/l.

Color runs to silver and emerald as do the intimations: metallic wet-forest notes over a cobalt minerality.  Density with grit and grain and underneath there’s a tensile pull.  Meyer lemon over mirabelle and the finish is toasted wheat bread outlined in chalk.  Now – 2020+.
