No. 1 Family Estate ‘Cuvee Remy’ Methode Traditionnelle 2007

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 26-Dec-2013
A cuvee created and released by Daniel Le Brun released on January 2010 to celebrate his son Remy’s 21st birthday. 80% clone 5 Pinot Noir and 20% Mendoza Chardonnay, hand-picked and WBP, fermented to 12.5% alc. and 6 g/L dosage, the wine spending 2 years on lees and disgorged December 2009. Full straw-yellow with golden hues at heart, lighter on edge, with a strong and persistent bead, the bubbles medium fine. This has a full, bold and voluminous bouquet of rich, broad complex aromas of ripe and savoury yellow stonefruits along with aldehyde and gunflint, unfolding layers of yeast extract and toastiness, showing bottle-age development. Dry to taste and full-bodied, densely packed flavours of yellow stonefruits, yeast, toast and flint form a complex melange and open out tofill the palate. The mousse is open and soft, and the acidity restrained, adding to the breadth and fullness. The flavours bloom and show waves of toasted nuts and brioche, and ripe fruits that carry through to a dry, textured and very long, lingering finish. This is a full, bold and complex method traditionnelle with toasty development. Match with antipasto and grilled white meats over the next 3-4 years. 19.0-/20 Dec 2013 RRP $N/A
