Sunday Dinner at Formento's (Chicago, IL): This is quintessential blanc des blancs with a clear mineral and citrus nose. There's a slight richness as well, but it's really the racier elements that come to the forefront. Intense, with great minerality on the finish. This is definitely a leaner champagne -- delicious now, but a few years should loosen things up a bit.
Again, this was the 04 not the 05. Really brilliant wine from Agrapart. Maturing nicely with notes of baked apples and bread, but wonderfully broad and structured yet with a fine line and great length. Lots to come with this wine, but lovely now
Fine and flinty with some mint, white peach and citrus fruit. There's a whiff of brioche and a little toast. It is relatively compact in the mouth with flavours that are direct and citrusy and super fine bead. It finishes with good cut and is quite dry.
