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.
