Tasting Note

This has a lovely rich colour, a deep straw gold. There is a rather fat mousse, very plentiful, with a myriad of streams of bubbles raising up to the surface of the wine. The nose is initially yeasty, before turning rather meaty and dense, suggesting Pinot Noir. There is a slightly cheesy streak, and then a more nutty, biscuity edge. Unlike Les Vignes de Vrigny here the palate is very well defined, a rather youthful and excited mousse at present making for a slightly coarse mouthfeel, but give it a year or two in bottle and this will settle. There is very fresh and admirable acidity, it is packed with flavours mirroring the nose, and is quite complete and harmonious after a little while in the glass during which the mousse settles somewhat. eally very good indeed, a dense and masculine in style which I would like to drink again. 17.5/20 (November 2007) Thewinedoctor.com
