Argyle Brut 2010

Argyle Brut 750ML 2010        
Sku: 51644

"FRESH & CRISP" - we know one should not refer to alcoholic beverages as invigorating, but this Brut is exceptionally fresh and crispy with a smooth cream center. Aromas include an enticing combination of apple blossoms, lemon custard with a beam of both vanilla crème and roasted hazelnut, with a touch of fresh squeezed extra virgin Spanish olive oil!

Tasting notes
The flavors are a fresh, crisp version of white peach, ripe apple, baked pastry with a mango-vanilla-yeast bouquet. The tartness is pleasantly wrapped into a sweet fruit finish.

Argyle?s 2010 Brut ? nearly half each Chardonnay and Pinot ? displays juicy lime, tangerine, grapefruit and apple, with citric and malic cut buffered by subtle, lees-induced creaminess, and with a fine mousse. There is an impressive balance between density and sheer sap on the one hand and levity and refreshment on the other. A saline streak serves for welcome saliva-inducement in a long, vibrant finish. Enjoy this exceptional value over the next 2-3 years ? and meantime imagine how complex the ?Extended Tirage? release is likely to be seven years from now! (Unfortunately, the winery was not yet ready to show me their 2010 Rose when I visited last July, although the Meunier-rich, greenhouse-scented, ultra-buoyant 2009 once again showed ravishingly.)

Light, crisp and expressive, with a prickly fizz underscoring the lively pear and citrus flavors, finishing long, with a light toasty note. Drink now.—H.S.
