A Bottle Of Bubbly - 2008 Biographie, Michel Genet
2008 Biographie, Michel Genet
It was three years since I last opened a bottle of this gorgeous Blanc de Blancs, and as I noted then, this would benefit from a couple of years in the cellar. I´ll bet that there still is some room for improvement, but this is a stunner right now.
The nose is open and inviting with depth, structure and an effortless ease, and displays notes of lemon fudge, cap gun smoke, oatmeal cookies, ripe peaches and sweet minerals. Very deep and soooo fine.
The taste is creamy yet racy and on its toes, with notes of slate, assorted nuts, milk chocolate fudge, smoke and a hint of vanilla. Very long. A fresh acidity. A lovely wine to drink now and the coming 8+ years.
