Doyard Brut Cuvée Vendémiaire
This has nice depth, with whole-grain toast, vanilla, coconut and roasted almond aromas and flavors. The citrus undercurrent and vibrant structure drive the flavors to a long, creamy, mineral-tinged aftertaste.
The NV Brut Cuvee Vendemiaire is a beautiful wine that shows lovely complexity in its aromas and flavors, suggesting a period of extended aging on the lees and/or a relatively high percentage of reserve wines in the blend. The Cuvee Vendemiaire shows plenty of Chardonnay character and a refined, subtle mousse that is a result of the lower-atmosphere vinification. The Vendemiaire is made from parcels in Vertus, Avize, Cramant, Oger and Le Mesnil.
