Ulysse Collin, Les Roises, Blanc de Blancs, Extra Brut (Base 2013, Disgorged March 2018), NV

Tasting Note:

Composed of 50% reserve wine with 50% base wine from the 2013 vintage, entirely from Les Roisses, disgorged in March 2018 after 48 months sur lie with under 2 grams of dosage. The south facing aspect of les Roisses, combined with the 65 year old Chardonnay vines, habitually produces the most profound and powerful of the Ulysses Collin cuvees. Sweet brioche and silky citrus, hazelnut, rock salt and white flowers, then violets and pears, set in a framework of very gentle reduction give rises to a startlingly complex nose. On the palate this is palate staining, the Southern exposure visible in the sheer depth and breadth of flavours, underpinned by an almost savoury flinty character, masses of presence and a real sense of extract. Champagne’s Batard?
