PIUZE NON DOSE CREMANTDE BOURGOGNE

89 POINTS JOHN GILMAN-"The current release of Patrick Piuze’s “Non-Dosé” Crémant de Bourgogne is a superb wine that transcends its appellation. The bright and complex nose offers up scents of pear, lemon, brioche, chalky minerality and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and complex, with a lovely core, reasonably refined mousse, crisp acids and excellent length and grip on the focused finish. It is only in the quality of the mousse here that one realizes that we are not in Champagne, and perhaps the wine is not quite as long as it would be if hailing from Champagne. But, other than these two minor considerations, this is pretty convincing bubbly and I would certainly be delighted if somewhere down the line, Patrick tries his hand at true Champagne, as I think he might just do something really special. 2013-2020."

This 50/50 cuvée of Chardonnay and Pinot is sourced from the village of Molosmes situated just 10 miles south of Champagne’s Côtes des Bar. All of its fruit was hand-harvested on September 10th, 2010 and fermented with natural yeasts in neutral barrels for four months. After an additional three months of maturation in barrel the wine was bottled and given two years aging “sur latte.” Despite its prominent Pinot Noir content, this sparkler’s flavor profile bears a distinct resemblance to Patrick’s Chablis. Indeed the nose displays a classic flint/orchard fruit character while on the palate the Pinot Noir is more felt than tasted as brilliant Chardonnay fruit dominates with mouth-watering essences of green apples and Bosc pears that are imbued with savory earthy infections. This Brut natural makes a very savvy aperitif choice and is one value sparkler that should please even hard-core Champagne aficionados. We recommend serving it with just a moderate chill to best bring out its ample subtleties. Limited, with a total production of just 300 cases.
