Daniel Le Brun Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle Brut NV

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Dec-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with some depth, the bubbles very fine and very persistent. The nose is elegant in presentation with very fresh aromas of white and yellow stonefruits and apples along with a light, but concentrated core of delicate bready-yeasty autolysis. This is softly rounded and gentle in expression, but builds in intensity with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh and sweet fruit flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and notes of apples and citrus fruits forming a rich, lush core. The fruit is entwined with subtle, restrained autolysis bread notes which lend a fine guiding line, with fresh acidity enlivening the mouthfeel and some creamy effervescence. This is refreshing and mouthwatering, and the flavours carry to a lingering finish. This is a fresh, up-front, fruit-focussed method traditionnelle with subtle autolysis and a mouthwatering palate. Serve as an anytime sparkling over the next 2-3 years. Hand-picked fruit from the Wairau Valley, 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir fermented to 12.5% alc. and aged 2-3 months on lees with MLF, then following secondary fermentation aged a minimum of 3 years on lees with a dosage of 8 g/L. Lot L170619-14. 18.0/20 Dec 2018 RRP $29.99
