We love the aromatic nose of white peach, soft summer strawberry, vanilla cream and even a little mandarin juiciness to add to the senses.
At first glance on the palate, evidence of a little oak provides some toasty/brioche-like notes and then we see Williams pear and the subtler star fruit. More than anything, we are thoroughly enjoying the tension in the acid profile amidst the softness of the palate structure from at least 5 years on lees.
Elegance, suppleness and refinement all wrapped up in a very easy drinking extra brut. Take no notice of the dosage and dive in.
Truly low dosage at 1 g/l, with 5 years lees ageing and fruit sourced from Villers-aux-Nœuds, Bouzy and Ecueil. Pinot noir is 55% with chardonnay being 45%. Disgorged 07/2017. Organic vineyard practices in place.
