Weight together with acidity—such incredible mineral density, aromatic nuance, and length

Sourdough, caramel apple, lemon meringue. So much more weight on the palate than what’s expected from the nose. Piercing acidity.

This is an outstanding example of 100% Pinot Noir, crafted from 40-year-old vines planted in limestone soils. Marie-Courtin
Efflorescence Extra Brut 2008 has the merest blush of pink when held up to the light, and the nose is an ebullient, fresh expression of ripe strawberries, raspberries, McIntosh apples, rose petal and kirsch. Weighty and full, the center of gravity lies in a vein of bright acidity, minerality and subtle touch of Fleur de Sel. Finishes with cherry pit and blood orange. Disgorged 03 2013

2010 base
We ordered 7 bottles in a row. That should tell you something.
