A.D. Coutelas, Brut Blanc de Blancs ‘Eloge’ Dizy

DJK Imports, South San Francisco CA.

All Chardonnay from a sirloin parcel in Vitryat, near Chalons en Champagne.  Planted in 1990 to deep chalky soils.  Base vintage plus reserve wines. Ageing: 36 months on lees and vinified in stainless steel tanks.  Disgorgement: 6 months prior to release.  Dosage: 8 g/l.

Yellow-gold.  Bountiful but not ‘fruity’.  Narcissus and balsam and starched like farro.  The finish extends a firm handshake of chalk.  Now.
