Jean Josselin, Brut Extra ‘Cordon Royal’ Aube (2012)

DJK Imports, South San Francisco CA.

All Pinot Noir from 11.7 h/a estate vineyards in Gyé-Sur-Seine.  Aged sur latte until the fruit has time to evolve.  2012 vintage.  100% malo.  Disgorged: July 2015.  Dosage: 3.75 g/l.  This bottle is from Lot No. 0715.

Yellow-gold.  At once hedonic and spicy: toasted brioche, allspice and sautéed peaches and what really makes this sing is the underlying mineral.  Smart is sexy and this wine is like that.  Now – 2020+.
