Two Bottles Of Chardonnay, One With Bubbles

NV Blanc de Blancs, Ruinart
Last drunk with Giacomo (Conterno, from Aldo Conterno), this is a great Blanc de Blancs with a spicy, nutty nose with notes of lemon peel, vanilla fudge, birch leaves and summer flowers. Very deep and fine.
The taste is tight and racy with lovely notes of grilled lemons, assorted nuts, grass and spices. Very long. A very fine acidity. 
93p   (tasted 2021/01)

2015 Chardonnay Mate´s Vineyard, Kumeu River
Drunk three years ago and it hasn´t budged at all. Still refined and gorgeous with a lovely grilled lemon character and a palate cleansing acidity. Great wine. 6+ years.
94p   (tasted 2021/01)
