Huré Frères, Brut Cuvée Terre Natale 1er Cru Ludes 2000

Imported by Alaine Wines, San Diego CA.

40% Chardonnay from Les Sentiers, 40% Pinot Noir from Les Chemins d’Ami and 30% Meunier from La Grosse Pierre.  Vine age from 1963, 1979, 1982.  All malo.  Dosage: 3 g/l.  At least ten years on the lees.

Golden in color, textural and fluffy as you would expect and this has a synergy between fruit and leesiness.  Quince and mead and Barb is quick to point out the silvery-green stream of oxalis and mercury that courses through the veins of this wine.  Now – 2020.
