Bruno Michel, Brut Millésimé Pierry 2002

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

80% Chardonnay, 20% Meunier from Pierry and Moussy. Organic since 1999. Raised in barrel, none of it new. Dosage: 4 g/l.

Fifteen years on.

Yellow-gold. Wildflowers and tree resin and the palate is still young and bright.  As the vanilla spice dies down the finely articulated mineral and fruit starts to show. Tropically lavish and sappy and the finish is a jacket of steel.  Now – 2025+.
