Gaston Chiquet Brut NV Blanc de Blancs, Dizy, France
Vinous.com rating: 91..."Green-gold. Sexy mineral-tinged aromas of ripe pear, nectarine, orange and buttered toast, with a hint of smokiness in the background; seems like there's some oak here but there's none. Smooth and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors underscored by a gingery nuance. Closes sappy and long, with building floral character and firm mineral bite."
