Community Tasting Note

    April 22, 2021 - Bookclub--Wines Tasted Blind: Poured blind. And I purposely arrayed this Maillart right in between two different disgorgements of Mousse's Mon Village, which is a perpetualle blend of Pinot Meunier. And as this Maillart being composed of Pinot Meunier, it created additional context with those two wines, too. The Mon Village is non-dose, whereas the Maillart has 4 g/l of dosage and is also raised in wood, which helped add even more contrast. Disgorged June 2020. Ultimately, the Maillart stuck out as richer, citrusy more flashy and seductive with peaches, pears, lime and some chalk. I liked the Maillart but ultimately the 2018 disgorgement of the Mousse Mon Village beat the Maillart for me.
