A. R. Lenoble, Brut Intense Damery

Imported by Free Run, Seattle WA.

30% CH from grand cru Chouilly, 35% PN from 1er cru Bisseuil, 35% Meunier from 1er cru Damery. Base vintage plus 30% reserve wines. Dosage: 6 g/l. Disgorged: first semester 2012.

Yellow-gold.  This one’s right at home up here in the coastal desert and admirably deliberate: black walnut and char and the embedded fruit of the loquat tree.  The finish is melodic and blossoming with a touch of metal.  Now.
