David Léclapart, Brut Extra Blanc de Blancs ‘l’Amateur’ 1er Cru Trépail (2008)

Domaine Select Wine Estates, New York NY.

100% Chardonnay from estate vineyards in Trépail.  All 2008 vintage.  Raised in enameled steel.  No dosage.  Organic-BIO.

Ten years on.

White gold.  Whippy and incisive notes of green orchid and white tea lead into a verdant ripeness that suggests a ‘sweetness’ not actually there.  Long rocky finish that arrives at its point.  Now – 2022.
