Louis Picamelot Crémant de Bourgogne les Terroirs Blanc Brut 2015

Burgundy, FranceIn 1926, Louis Picamelot, son of a cooper and winegrower, was among the first in Rully to produce a Mousseux. The winery is still in the family today, growing in hectares over the generations. This, their entry cuvee, is a blend of Pinot Noir (57%), Chardonnay (32%), and Aligoté (11%), from Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune, and Côte de Nuits. Once blended and bottled, this aged on lees for at least a year prior to release. This bottle was triaged in November 2016, and disgorged October 2018. Red and yellow apple, subtle apricot blossoms, and light cream fill the mellow palate, with a burst of bright acidity, but soft downy lees and a fair dosage (unknown, but firmly Brut). Easy and welcoming, thankfully bright with acidity, and ready for drinking now.Tasted: 05 March 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 27.00 private wine shops Producer: Louis PicamelotBlend: Pinot Noir - Chardonnay - AligotéUPC: 3760000701211
