Serge Mathieu, Brut Millésimé Aube 2009

Regal Wine Imports, Moorestown NJ.

100% Pinot Noir from 11 h/a of vineyards in Avirey-Lingey. Raised in stainless steel and enamel tank. Full malo. Aged 5 years on the lees, then one more year in bottle. Dosage: 6 g/l.

Ten years on.

Yellow gold.  Loaded with clear upfront flavor of saffron and toast.  The riper yellow fruits remind me of the apple guava plucked from the trees in our neighborhood: you bring it home, put it in your kitchen and it will perfume the whole house.  Now.
