Scents of fraises des bois point up this wine’s crunchy red-fruit flavors, one side fresh and bright, the other shaded in mushroom tones. There’s spiciness to the finish, close to mace or allspice. This is 60 percent pinot meunier, and it takes what can sometimes be a rustic variety toward refinement.
Baron-Fuenté’s non-vintage Brut bottling is composed of a blend of sixty percent pinot meunier, thirty percent chardonnay and ten percent pinot noir, with all the vins clairs all fermented in stainless steel. It is a full malo wine and is aged three years sur latte, being finished with a dosage of nine grams per liter. I am not sure if this is the same release I reported on last year or a new cuvée, but the wine is showing very well. The bouquet offers up a fine constellation of white peach, apple, lovely meunier floral tones, a touch of patissière, lovely minerality and a hint of lemon zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very nicely balanced, with a good core, a fine sense of bounce, elegant mousse and lovely cut and grip on the seamless and classy finish. Fine juice, with plenty of pinot meunier delicacy in evidence on the palate. Drink between 2016-2030. 90+
Light gold. Fresh melon, orange and peach on the fruity nose and in the mouth. Supple and broad on the palate, showing a hint of warmth on the back half. In an easygoing style, finishig with gentle cut and good length. (JR)
This is the producer’s nonvintage cuvée—a crisp, apple-flavored wine dominated by the softness of Pinot Meunier. It’s fruity with an attractive and zesty acidity. A great apéritifstyle Champagne. (RV)
A firm bead and lively acidity structure this broad bubbly, with tightly knit flavors of white raspberry, candied lemon zest, pickled ginger and salted almond. (AN)
