Paul Goerg, Brut Rosé 1er Cru Vertus

Blicker Pierce Wagner Wine Merchants, Napa CA.

Négociant Manipulant wine.  85% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir from premier cru vineyards in Vertus.  Base vintage plus reserve wines.  Aged three years on the lees and six+ months in bottle post disgorgement. Dosage: 8 g/l.  Current release.

A classic salmon pink and the wine is discreet and cooly enticing.  Floral and strawberried and the finish is etched in Vertus chalk.   Transparent and I would think by its character this is 2013 base vintage.  Now.
