Black Label's brilliant color recalls the characteristic straw tones of the Pinot Noir, with glints of amber. It is lively in the flute, with a fine stream of persistent bubbles. Its fresh aromas combine the impression of vitality and spring-time scents, together with hints of toast and honey. On the palate, bouquets of ripe fruits and citrus create a sensation of opulence yet lightness.
Firm and smoky, offering flavors of candied cherry, bread dough, lemon zest and toasted raisin bread, with a lively bead. Moderate finish.
Light yellow-gold. Meyer lemon and pear skin aromas are complemented by notes of chalky minerals, quinine and brioche. Chewy and dry on entry, then fleshier and smoother in the mid-palate, offering densely packed orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter citrus pith. Closes with firm grip and very good, mineral-driven persistence, leaving a toasty, smoky note behind. Here's an NV bottling that deserves cellaring.
