Ariston Aspasie, Brut Prestige Vieilles Vignes Brouillet (2009)

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.  2009 vintage.

From magnum.

Yellow-gold.  This really blasts those black Brouillet’s aromas right out of the glass.  Rugged and ripe and meaty but with an intriguing vein of steel.  The mastiff of champagnes.  Now – 2025+.
