NV Instant Brut Blanc de Blancs, Pertois-Lebrun
A young, fresh, distinct nose with notes of yellow apples, lemon zest, white flowers, fudge and a hint of coffee latte. A salivating nose. Crushed rocks. Very, very good.
The taste is young and focused with notes of white currants, lemon cream, mineral, dry fudge and warm grass. A long and fresh finish. A fine acidity. This is good. For drinking now and the upcoming 6+ years. I will be ordering some. It works great with some truffle potato chips before dinner.
91p   (tasted 2015/10)
