Daniel Le Brun Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blancs 2012

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Dec-2018
Bright, pale golden-hued yellow colour, lighter on the rim, the bubbles fine and persistent. The nose is softly full and gently packed with a heart of white and yellow stonefruits, along with citrussy elements, intermixed with finely intense and penetrating bready-yeasty autolysis at the core. Nuances of savoury, nutty notes show the beginnings of complex development detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has tightly bound, intense and penetrating, deep flavours of white stonefruits, white florals and citrus fruit entwined with bready-yeasty autolysis and subtle nutty complexities. The fruit is delicately rich and luscious, and the mouthfeel has a creamy mousse, the wine flowing smoothly along a fine line with fresh acid energy and poise, carrying to a sustained finish. This is a tight and refined Blab de Blanc method with white stonefruits, red floral and berry notes with good depth of complexing autolytic flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood and white meat dishes over the next 2-3+ years. 100% Chardonnay from the Wairau Valley WBP and fermented in French oak and stainless-steel and aged 2-3 months on lees, undergoing partial MLF to 12.5% alc. the wine aged a minimum of 5 years on lees in bottle with 6 g/L dosage. Lot L180625-12. 18.5+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $39.99
