Ariston Aspasie, Brut Prestige Vieilles Vignes Brouillet (2008)

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

50% Chardonnay, 25% PN, 25% Meunier from the estate’s oldest plots.  Average age: 50 years.  Aged at least six years on the lees.  2008 vintage.

From magnum.

Ten years on.

Yellow gold.  Combines the florality of ’08 with the black fruit and darker tertiaries of Brouillet terroir.   Sappy and articulate; toasted wheat bread at the end. Now – 2028+.
