Arthur Marc, Brut Grand Cuvée Fleury-la-Rivière

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

Even blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from estate vineyards.  Vine age (average): 35 years.  Aged for five years on the lees before being released and blended with 20% older vintages.

Yellow-gold.   At once glossy and streamlined.  Toasted straw and hawthorne and lemon soufflé.   Intriguing vein of steel underneath.  The finish shows salty strength and chalky cling.  Now.
