First time trying the Baron-Fuente Millesime after their Reserve and it enjoying that quite a bit. This one needs a bit of time in bottle to show its better self than their N/V fresh.

The nose shows; macerated fruits of, green & golden apples, lemon, lime zest, well overripe pineapple, white peach and hints of grapefruit with pith. Lots of bread dough and yeastiness. Soft chalkiness & volcanic minerals, oyster shells, yellow florals & lilies with mixed greens.

The palate again delivers that bread dough & yeastiness. Macerated fruits of; green & golden apples, lemon, lime zest, well overripe pineapple, white peach and hints of grapefruit with pith. Lots of bread dough and yeastiness. Soft chalkiness & gritty volcanic minerals, saline, oyster shells, yellow florals & lilies with mixed greens. Good acidity and a well balanced & polished finish. This will deliver a little more with a 3-5 years in bottle.

Photos of; House of Baron Fuente, labeling machine, beautiful just harvested Chardonnay grapes and our news lounge chairs for sitting under our Japanese Maple.

ストローイエロー
泡は細かく力強い
売れたピーチやアプリコットの香り
ムニエを強く感じる
ミネラルに欠けるような気もする
3本飲んだけど値段相応かな。
とは言え、4000円ほどでヴィンテージシャンパーニュはなかなか見つからない
