With 4.5g/l rs, again “Extra Brut” could have been used. This is the official vintage wine, and is often the most masculine and full-bodied wine in the range. This ’09 is yummy and stern. Serious and chipper. A ton of almost Veltliner-like meadow flower and vetiver; more density and torque than Gastronome but also more corpulent and with less foreground mineral. ’09 is a virtually perfect vintage for the drinker. Disgorged 01/29/16.
