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. 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 a ripe wine with attractive acidity and layers of apple and creamed-pear fruitiness. Still fresh and tangy, the wine has a lively mousse to balance the gentle, soft aftertaste. (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)
