Marcel Moineaux Chouilly Brut Blanc De Blancs Grand Cru, Champagne, NV ($39.99)
100% Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards in Chouilly in the Cote de Blancs. Fermented in stainless steel tanks with full malo-lactic fermentation, blended with 40% reserve wines, and aged 3 years on the yeasts with a dosage of 7 grams per liter. Again, a classic Chardonnay Champagne offering ripe and developed full range citrus fruit over chalky terroir and developed yeast. Delicious in more of an aperitif style but the texture and dimensionality are present. BearScore: 92.
