Ariston Aspasie, Brut Blanc de Blancs Brouillet Non Vintage

aspasie-blanc-de-blanc-nv

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

All chardonnay from the sirloin parcel Gouttes d’Or in Brouillet.  2008 base vintage plus reserve wines.

From magnum.

White-gold.  Not your usual BdB; those are cool and this one lays down in fire and the wine seems to rise on thermal columns of freshness.  The liquid foams away and the air is charged with burning leaf and toasted narcissus.  The mandarin orange ripeness of ’08 and the finish is as savory as shrimp shell reduction.  Now – 2020.
