Louis Brochet, Brut Millésimé Ecueil 2008

DJK Imports, South San Francisco CA.

70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay from estate premier cru vineyards on the Petite Montagne between Reims and Epernay.  Raised in barrel.  Aged in cellar eight years.  Bottled in April 2009; disgorged October 2015.  Dosage: 9 g/l.

Yellow-gold.  Shows a force of expressiveness and the flavors chase a berried melange of black, blue and red.  Chocolate flowers and toffee, bois and leesy and the blockbuster finish is neither paradoxical or ambiguous.  Now – 2025+.
