Jean Baillette-Prudhomme Cuvée Memoris Premier Cru
The golden color is luminous, with a fine effervescence and a delicate mousse. The cuvée has 8+ years of age, but the nose is fresh, with delicate hints of almond, minerals, and overall purity. The body has a nice richness with dried fruit and toast coming through, but it is the crisp acidity that leads the overall personality of this aged cuvée. Perfect as an aperitif, but strong enough to hold up to the main course.
