Pur Mesnil indeed. Popped yesterday, and this was kind of a mess showing disjointed with a bit too much nervous energy and aggressive mousse. Turns out it just needed time. Much better today as the mousse has softened. I would say this deserves a decant if you need to drink this now. No disg info on the btl.
Notes from 24 hrs open, in the fridge overnight. On the nose: lemon, vanilla cream, soft marzipan, and loads of Mesnil chalk. On the palate: stunning acidity, altogether more well-put-together; grapefruit, loads of chalk and wet stone, lemon oil and a kiss of vanilla. Juicy and vibrant finish. This needs a **lot** of time if this btl is representative. — 2 months ago

Nose has thinned honey, beeswax candle, grapefruit pith, distant honeysuckle and sliced pear.
Palate has honey drizzle over white grapefruit supremes, lime zest, under-ripe green melon, lemon verbena tea, white peach, with medium acidity and finish.
A quite nice wine, catching me off guard with mild expectations; I'm happy with the outcome.
100% Altesse, from Bugey!
