Delalot, Eliane: Pleiades

Dosage 4g/l. Yellow golden color with a refined effervescence and nice tears on the glass. Very complex aroma of ash, pumpkin, nettle cheese, goat, courgette flower, verbena and a light medicinal haze of anesthetic diethyl ether. After some time in the glass it showed candied citrus, honeysuckle, christmas pudding, café noirs biscuits, resin and something reminiscent of raw rhubarb. Lovely concentrated mouthfeel. On the palate you get physalis, tangerine, yuzu and complex autolytic tones. Very fruit forward. On the mid palate there is overripe apple, nectarine and a touch of coriander seeds. Long finish with tartaric acid, young yellow fruits, physalis and minerals. A very special wine made by Jerome Lefêvre. A grower to follow.
