Blue Mountain Reserve Brut R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's RD Reserve Brut blends 65% chardonnay and 35% pinot noir, with 6.5 years on lees prior to bottling, and another year in bottle prior to release. It was disgorged in August 2019 with 4 g/L. Very complexed, with layers of shimmering stony buzz basing red apple, lemon pith, roasted nuts, on a grippy, meringue-based palate. Quite deep with the autolytics provided by the additional aging. This is drinking beautifully now, but with time still ahead.Tasted: 09 March 2021Tasted by: Prices:
