100% Chardonnay from Le Mesnil sur Oger and Chouilly
Dosage: 2 g/l
This wine has a yellow golden color with a very refined effervescence. On the nose you get ripe golden apples, physalis, lychee/rambutan, pepernoot confectionary, pineapple and a hint of baked apple. After a while you get almonds and toasted brioche. The mouthfeel is soft and structured. On the palate you get red apple, ripe pear, a hint of mango, browned butter and fresh minerality on the mid-palate. The finish has a trail of nougat, pink grapefruit, mild citrus and a hint of white pepper. Perfect with grilled sepia or a creamy goat cheese. I expected maybe a bit more complexity.
