André Robert, Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Millésimé Le-Mesnil-Sur-Oger 2006

Imported by Return to Terroir,  San Francisco CA.

100% Chardonnay from 14 h/a estate vineyards in Mesnil. 100% barrel vinification, with occasional stirring. Malo blocked. Seven years on the lees. Disgorgement: June 10th 2014. Dosage: 6 g/l.

Yellow-gold. Just honeyed lemon opens out to satsuma and button mushroom and a whiff of burnt praline. Crustier and the architecture shows more promise than the ’05. The finish is incisive, a jab of Mesnil’s graphitic site intensity. Now – 2023+.
