Tasting Notes

This is a field blend (Champagne Gemischter Satz!) of every grape permitted in Champagne. I know of no other. It blends 25% 2008, 35% 09 and 40% 10, disgorged 11/2015 without dosage. Exceedingly complex and original, recalling Ziereisen’s oldvines Chasselas; clinging length and detail; densely nutty and saline, and fervently chalky. All steel. The mind wants to identify the flavors of each variety but the wine refuses to allow you. It is holistic, a mélange. Very small production of an entirely original wine. —Terry Theise
