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+.
