J. Dumangin Fils Brut 17

With new contracts in place in the outstanding 2008 vintage and thirty percent declassified premier cru fruit in the blend, this is as cracking as I have ever seen Brut 17. A pristine bouquet of vibrant lemons and strawberry hull opens out into a palate of fantastic, linear freshness with great persistence, a fine, creamy bead and refreshing minerality. An ideal aperitif style.
