Yves Ruffin, Brut Millésimé ‘Cuvée Precieuse’ D’Avenay-Val d’Or 2008

Envoyer Imports, Laguna Hills CA.

60% PN, 40% Chardonnay from from premier cru vineyards in D’Avenay-Val d’Or.  Dosage: 3 g/l. Organic/BIO since 1971.

White-gold.   The wine is charged with density: cooking aromas with a strawberry splash on a bed of narcissus.  Long mid-palate flavor, whose amplitude rises up like a speed bump for the senses.   Pulsating at the end, the outlines marked by chalk dust.  Now – 2020+.
