Tasted from Magnum. Although this is not vintage Champagne, I am told this is all 2017 vintage grapes. The Brut Nature indicates this had zero dosage. It is 100% Pinot Noir and went thru 100% Malolactic fermentation. A very interesting and very good wine. Golden in color with a slight copper hue. Quite a bit of very tiny bubbles. The nose has seltzer, melon, chalk and slight lemon. Full bodied. On the palate, this has a bit of sweetness to it which is likely just from ripe fruit (no easy task in 2017). There is an herbal note along with melon and plenty of minerality. This has a lot of depth to it. Long finish. This drinks great on its own and is very food friendly. It would be great with fried chicken.
