From our friends at Salon, this sparkler is 90% grand gru Chard with the balance in red grapes and it smells like it too. It has a great yeasty Chard nose with hints of lemon and reminds me of an English-style cuvée with its toasty notes with great lemon backing acid. Though labelled brut this is more at brut nature so lean is the dosage. I love it: shuck some oysters and lets get after it!

Pale gold. Interplay of cultured cream and papaya with lemon, golden apple and tea rose follow through. Specks of lime scent swirl, discombobulated in the frozen, underripe pineapple expanse. Toasty frame drops quickly in a lemon and lime juice flume made of sterling silver. Kafir leaves in lightest brine add a minerality that defines the space including a real suggestion of white pepper on the finish. Despite the description, this is not overly racy, instead, relying on its needles and pins to deliver the concentrated citric doses with precision. Finely ground chalk and salt rock it’s high mark. .

Disgorgement date unknown (but probably 2009-11 guessing from the cork).
Super solid "entry level" from Delamotte comprised primarily of Chardonnay and usually with 25-35% Pinot Noir and some Pinot Meunier.
Deeelicious....
