Louis Brochet, Brut Extra 1er Cru Ecueil

DJK Imports, South San Francisco CA.

75% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 5% Meunier from the Petite Montagne. 2013 vintage plus 50% reserve wine (35% from the previous two harvests and 15% from the solera that Louis started in 2010). Disgorged December 2018. Dosage: 4 g/l.

Yellow-gold. Vanilla flowers and lemon fritters and a marrow-infused savor. Satisfying. Louis gives this a fourth year in the cellar to fill out. Now.
