I can’t find the exact blend for this vintage, but it is Pinot Nero and Chardonnay. Zero Dosage. This would be a good food wine, bright in flavour with spiced apple, quince and pear frangipane all bound up in fluffy lemon meringue. There are some basil and white pepper notes adding some lovely complexity. Nicely toasty, vinous palate with a little more chewy grip than you would expect from Champagne. Despite the lack of dosage, the fruit sweetness really carries the mid-palate and the wine feels balanced. Works really well.
