Blue Mountain Reserve Brut R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis late disgorged Reserve Brut from Blue Mountain opens with quite an expressive nose of caramelized apple, cheese rind, and toasted nuts layered with a subtle hint of orange peel and chalky minerality. The savoury autolytic characters are even greater on the palate mingled with pear skin and spices. Only 4g/L dosage, but it feels sweeter, round, and creamy, thanks to the seven and a half years of lees ageing. It shows great integration coming from the further 12 months of bottle ageing. Highly recommended.Tasted: 26 November 2022Tasted by: Prices:
