Etienne Doué, Brut ‘Cuvée Grande Réserve’ Aube

Thomas Calder Selection and Sacred Thirst Selections, Moraga CA.

100% Chardonnay from estate vineyards in Montgueux (RM).  Full malo.  Raised and aged in steel.  Sur lattes  minimum 18 months.  2017 release.

Yellow-gold.  Trustworthy and unaffected.  Less starchy that I remember.  Narcissus, almond and the silvery gurgle of spring-water freshness.  The finish begins flowery and ends as salt and limestone.  Now.
