Terry Theise and Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY.
65% PN and 35% Chardonnay from estate vineyards in Merfy and Masif de Saint Thierry in the Montagne de Reims. 60% 2013 and 40% 2012 vintages. Dosage: 5.5 g/l. Disgorged September 2016.
Yellow-gold. Effusively fragrant with invigorating zest and a texturally satiny palate. Above all, the balance is first-rate. Iodine sea-air, blossoming trees, honey mushrooms, citrus zests, cardamom, sencha, walnut and McCoun apple all find their counterparts here. Now – 2025.
