Singular and great. It grows more polished every year. Yet it retains its rural angularity, that mead-y, almost hoppy note.
Rich and biscuity, like a wine that happens to have bubbles, this displays nut, honey and dough aromas and flavors on a full-bodied, open-knit structure. Long grilled almond and honey aftertaste. A Champagne for those who like the full-bore style. Drink now through 2005.
A blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, Lallementês non-vintage Brut (May 27 2005) reveals top-flight aromatic richness in its floral scents. Though predominantly Pinot Noir, this wine is eerily Chablis-like, with concentrated salty mineral flavors. Light to medium-bodied, spicy, and dry, it reveals outstanding depth.
