The vins clairs were barrel-fermented and given extended aging in cask until July of 2018 prior to bottling up for secondary fermentation. The wine was disgorged in November of 2020. The wine offers up a lovely bouquet of white peach, apple, a touch of hazelnut, patissière, a beautiful base of soil and a whisper of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a lovely core, excellent mineral drive and cut, elegant mousse and a long, very well-balanced and bone-dry finish. This is a beautifully made Brut Nature, but at this point in its evolution, it is still a little snappy and will be most enjoyed by purists in the non-dosé camp. For me, it needs still a couple of years in the cellar to soften up its spine of acidity just a bit more. It is once again a superbly made wine, but I miss the days when this bottling sported four grams per liter of dosage and I could drink it right out of the blocks!

It was disgorged in September 2020. As readers will remember, the "17" denotes the base vintage, which is complemented by reserve wines from a solera established in 2010. - WK
