José Michel et Fils, Brut Grand Vintage 2008

Envoyer Fine Wines, Laguna Hills CA.

Ten years on.

Even blend of Meunier and Chardonnay from estate vineyards in Moussy.  Raised in both steel and wood.  Dosage: 9 g/l.

Yellow-gold.  Splits the difference between grip and attractiveness.  A parfait of pear nectar, sweet spice cake and fragrant white flowers.  As the chalk dissolves the finish is pure Meunier.  Now – 2023+.
