This is drier than the 7 g/l would usually suggest but I underscore that it stops short of austerity. Lovely stuff fashioned in a "drink me now" style. collapse

The wine undergoes full malolactic fermentation, with five percent of the blend raised in Burgundy barrels and is finished with a dosage of 7.5 grams per liter. The current release is really quite lovely on the nose, wafting from the glass in a blend of white peach, patissière, a touch of almond, beautiful Aube flinty limestone and fresh-baked bread. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and zesty, with a very good core of fruit, fine mineral drive pinpoint bubbles, still fairly youthful acidity and very good length and grip on the youthfully complex finish. There is no information on date of disgorgement for this bottling, but I would guess that this is base year 2011 (which is far better in the Aube than further north) or 2012. This is still a tad on the young side and will be even better with a bit of bottle age, and given its excellent structure, this is a fine candidate for tucking away in the cellar for five to seven years and really allowing the wine to blossom. (Drink between 2017-2030) collapse

On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, chalky and incisive, with fine depth and tension and a penetrating finish. - William Kelley collapse
