René-Henri Coutier, Brut Blanc de Noirs ‘Cuvée Henri III’ Grand Cru Ambonnay 2009

Polaner Selections, Mount Kisco NY.

Ten years on.

Yellow-gold.  A solar greeting, and kinder than expected.  Ginger snap and orange zest lead the way forward.  Sappy and taffeta, lingering at the end in an animated interplay of chalk and spice.  Now – 2025+.
