Sparkling wine. Champagne, France. Organic. 100% Chardonnay. "Christian Bourmault’s Lettre à Terre bottling hails from vines that range from forty-five to sixty-seven years of age, all situated in the village of Cuis, and the current release is from the base year of 2014, but includes forty-nine percent of the previous vintage as reserve wine. It was disgorged in October of 2018 and finished with a dosage of three grams per liter. The wine offers up a lovely bouquet of apple, pear, fresh-baked bread, chalky minerality, a dollop of white flowers, a smoky topnote and a discreet foundation of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full- bodied and zesty, with a fine core of fruit, good mineral drive and cut, frothy mousse and a long, nascently complex and very classy finish. I like the touch of oak here on the palate, which folds in seamlessly to the minerality and lovely fruit tones. The wine is quite approachable already, but it is built to age and will be an even better dink three or four years down the road! Fine juice. 2023-2040+." — 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
