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+.
