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.
