Gonet Medeville Cuvee Theophile Extra Brut 2006
The 2006 Cuvée Théophile Grand Cru Extra Brut blends 60% Chardonnay (from Les Champs d'Alouette in Mesnil-sur-Oger) and 40% Pinot Noir (Ls Grande Rouelle in Ambonnay). Vinified in used barriques, this wine offers an intense and vinous bouquet of ripe fruits and pure chalk. Full-bodied and intense on the palate, this is a very elegant and expressive Champagne with a firm structure and a long, complex finish. It's lean and rich at the same time, and probably needs a bit of time. It was disgorged in July 2015 with two grams of dosage per liter.
