Jean Milan, Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru ‘Cuvée Symphorine’ Oger 2008

Terry Theise and Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY.

Chardonnay from estate vineyards in Oger, including Zailleux, Beaudures, Barbettes and Chenêts. Dosage: 6 g/l. 

Yellow-gold. The nose breathes in chalky length and fastidious detail, etched in sorrel, claytonia and pencil lead. Quince and pear fruit are closely bound together on its stylish and sun-influenced content. It finishes on shimmery and intense juice, from within. In a translucent stage, still yet to declare its true shape and character. Now – 2030+.
