Besserat de Bellefon Brut Cuvée des Moines
|Besserat de Bellefon
Chablis with bubbles. Floral, apple, pear and flinty notes team up with a crisp, firm structure in this ethereal blanc de blancs. The flavors verge on gingerbread and vanilla on the finish.
This is a crisp wine, with dosage that gives freshness to the white fruits. The 100% Pinot Noir gives some structure as well as good acidity. The bottling will age and should be better from 2020.
Disgorged in May 2017, the intensely yellow colored NV Cuvée des Moines Brut (green label) offers a rich and aromatic but fine and elegant nose with subtle mineral or chalky notes as well as citrus and tropical fruit (pineapples). Round, intense and slightly nutty, this is a full-bodied, charming, intense and elegant cuvée assembling Pinot Meunier with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This wine combines richness and hedonism with purity and precision. It has a long, sharp, well-defined finish. Excellent in quality and style. Tasted in October 2018 from lot L7S989003.
