A.D. Coutelas, Brut Millésimé Dizy 2006

DJK Imports, South San Francisco CA.

Even blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from premier cru sites in Dizy, Villers-sous-Châtillon, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Vitry la Francois and Troissy.  Oldest vines 70 years.  Raised in steel with full malo. Ageing: 36 months on lees and vinified in stainless steel tanks. Disgorgement: 6 months prior to release. Dosage: 6 g/l.

Yellow-gold.  Textural, round and crackery with a toastier mid-palate compared to the NV cuvées.  Wet forest and sweated fennel and the finish points the way forward.  Now.
