NV Andre Clouet, Bouzy Grand Cru Silver Brut
Mineral-driven with a dry salinity that lets the tight citrus fruit and yeast shine through. Yeasty aromas with the nuttiness of chardonnay even though this is 100% pinot noir. Lightly vinous with full orange rind, zesty lime, and grapefruit. Finish hints at those nuts again, but cleans up and shrivels the inside of the lips. Brut zero? Brut negative.
