This stratches all the right spots for my champagne liking, although not for everyone. You definetely feel the non dose character in this bone dry and slightly bitter expression of a Blanc de Noir. Nose is wonderful mineral with red jonagold able, abricot, and a bit of freshly baked rye bread. Palate is full on with leafy, slightly bitter fruit, sour able, celery, with excellent lenght and great tension in the mouthfeel, very full flavored despite its young age. Will probably mellow out a bit with more age but i quite like its expression now.
Very similar note to the one of 5/8/2013. There are some more of the secondary notes coming through now (like minerality, brioche, a touch of honey) but still super fresh, with a lot of precision and tension. What an amazing Blanc de Noirs!
