L. Bénard-Pitois Brut Nature

A new label, released in late 2012, this is Bénard-Pitois Brut Réserve kept two years longer on lees and without added dosage, showcasing the ability of this style to both age confidently and stand tall without added sugar. It retains impressive poise of lemon and purity of white peach, lively acidity and excellent mineral freshness, juxtaposed wonderfully with toasty, roast nut maturity. Finely crafted, beautifully balanced and quite a bargain.
