Champagne ‘Anecdote’, Mousse
Vallee de la Marne
We, ah, looked the other way last year with the 2011, but this all-Chard Champagne is delightful once more. Deg 2/21/16, it isn’t quite the charmeur it once was—when it was less dry—but with 2012’s power it renders a stern, stony Chardonnay in a convincing and balanced form. Lovely apple-flesh aroma (red gala, Fiji), a mouthfilling palate; tastes consequential and washes into a huge minerally finish that reminded me of Chenin Blanc. We bought all he’d give us, which isn’t much.
