Jean Baillette-Prudhomme Cuvée Memoris Premier Cru
Appearance A golden luminescence, pretty green reflections, and lively beads bubbling speedily to the glass’s rim.
Nose Toasted almonds, a hint of leather, and distinct minerality. Think riding bareback through an almond orchard.
Taste An energetic effervescence brings crisp brightness, with hints of dried fruit, almonds, and hazelnuts.
Food pairing This cuvée is an ideal pre-meal treat, but it can stand up to a medium rare steak like nobody’s business.
Story The memory’s been rattling in your mind like a long-unused key in a drawer. Suddenly it comes into focus. That winter day. The roar of the fire. His gloves thawing on the mantle. The glass he poured you.
