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+
Tart and fresh, with notes of sage and thyme, this is a simple Champagne with a light, airy feel. Its scents of almond and bread dough connect at the intersection of limestone, lees and dosage.
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, finishing 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. Drink now. (RV)
A firm Champagne, with a crisp, airy mousse, this offers hints of crunchy white peach, plum, pastry and candied ginger. (AN, Web Only-2018)
