Disgorged 04/2015. 6 g/l. Straw to like yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout with tiny, steady beading. Nose of yellow pear, yellow apple, a splash of citrus and a hint of cookie dough. Flavors of lemon, sherry, green apple and tart pear. Bright acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold.
Really liked this, with complex, rich mouth, good intensity, and long finish. Yeasty, slight wood note showing through adding earthy character mixed with pure orchard fruits. 1/3 each grape, aged 5 yrs, 7 mo. in old oak, indigenous yeast, 6g/l.
Smoky, graphite and apple nose - draws you into the wine nicely. Clean and slightly tart, the fruit is fairly lean and I feel a touch more density would fill out the palate, but as it stands it is refreshing to drink. Finishes with medium length. A couple of years of bottle age would likely serve it well.
Deg 02-2014 so almost no post disgorgement age - but damn good anyway! This was really a positive surprise. Very reshing and not overly acidic. Like 7-up for adults, with more spice and complexity.. This was really excellent with Spaghetti Cabonada.
The PM still makes it's forward/floral presence known here, though less so than in the Tradition. An outgoing wine, but very mineral and with low-ish dosage. Quite doughy with smoky hazelnut and orchard fruit.
Light yellow gold color with abundant stream of tiny bubbles with yeasty, appple, pear, spiced oranged aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and very dry with tart apple, pear, and mineral flavors. Lingering finish. Blend of 1/3 PN, Meunier and Chard. 6 g/L dosage.
