Ariston Aspasie, Brut de Fût Brouillet (1997)

Aspasie Brut de Fut NV #1

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

50% Chardonnay, 25% PN, 25% Meunier.  1997 Vintage.  Raised in barrel but not aged in it.  This is lot #1224f09.

Twenty years on.

Golded in color, the last of these ’97s and the mimosa blossom and purple iris of his youth has turned to truffle.  Texture runs to velvet, black cherry confiture and caramelized langoustine with a malty sandalwood burnish.  The finish is old-world gorgeous.  Now.
