Tasting Notes

80% CH and 10% each PN/Meunier (a first for this wine), 45% in wood; new deg 10/2014, and starting to taste no-longerinfantile, plus showing what 2007 can evolve into; this is mizuna in the form of Champagne, a ferrous green snappiness, leading to a nettle-y finish. Unusual for this wine, but compelling. —Terry Theise

Review:
The 2007 Brut Volupté is a bit more oxidative in style than the Empreinte. The blend is different of course, but the aromas and flavors have a warm, inner glow that is quite welcoming. Hints of caramel and white flower wrap around the finish. The 2007 Volupté is 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier done in a combination of large oak and tank. This bottle was disgorged in June 2013.
