Charlot, Vincent: Le Fruit de ma Passion 2013

This wine is made of 55% Pinot Meunier, 5% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. Dosage: 4.5 g/l.

In the glass we see a medium yellow gold color with fine bubbles and a gentle mousse. Lovely seductive nose of royal jelly, pear, cavaillon melon, breadcrust, almond, lychee and poire williams liqueur. After a longer while you get a lot of raspberry, rhubarb comfiture and even a faint cheesy note of savoyard. There is a feather light quality to it. It is clean and structured but packed with lovely ripe fruit. On the palate you get red apple, melon, pear and candied lime. The finish is long and lingers ladyfinger biscuits, breadcrumbs, kaffir lime leaf, verbena tea and a hint of tobacco. Another very sexy and voluptuous Fruit de ma Passion.
