    The 2006 Ellner Seduction opens with a yeasty, brioche nose and hints of geranium. Green apple fruit shines through but the palate is rounder, with supple texture reminiscent of honey. The acid is easygoing without sacrificing lift, and gives way to a chalky, pithy finish. Lots of structure now but should show more of 2006’s ripeness as it ages.

    This vintage Champagne gem comes entirely from the Ellner estate: 60% Chardonnay from the Grand Crus of Avize and Chouilly and 40% Pinot Noir from the 1er Cru of Tauxieres. Like all of the Ellner wines, this Seduction has not gone through malolactic fermentation, and as such has very good zip and drive even though it is from quite a ripe vintage. The long, eight year sur-lie aging process has given this wine the classic brioche aromas and fine texture that we want in the best of vintages Champagne.
    Drink from 2016 to 2030
