Delicious alongside a classic Gaspé Nova on rye from Russ & Daughters. A worthy and appropriate pairing, as both are top-quality choices from producers who started as mavericks and developed into respected and loved institutions.
Very elegant and refined, mousse is tingly rather than creamy but not aggressive or unpleasant. Classic blanc de blanc firm structure, citrus/brioche character. A very compelling bottle.
• 100% estate-grown chardonnay from Short Hills Bench, hand-picked
• Lot selection, 20% barrel-fermented
• 54 months on lees, 60 in bottle

Pears! Very yeast driven nose with a fresh bowl of peaches. Honeydew melon also shows up on the tongue with a firm acid backdrop.
