NV Emmanuel Brochet 'le mont Benoit' Extra Brut -CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE. 750ml
This comes from 40yo vines on a southeast facing hillside of the Mont Benoit in Villers-aux-Noeuds. It is made from a base of 80% 2016 and 20% 2015, aged in new to 12yo barrels for eleven months, and was then given two and a half years 'sur lattes' before disgorging. The malolactic fermentation was completed. It feels vivid and vibrant in its energy, and is intensely expressive of its terroir thanks to a briny, oyster-like salivation and rich texture. Disgorged 02/20 - Dosage 2g/l. - Nick Brooks, VineTrail.
