Brown Brothers Patricia Sparkling Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Extended Lees 2010


Not often we get to enjoy a sparkler that has enjoyed a longer period on lees, an impressive 12 years, than most champagnes. This superb sparkler is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from the King Valley. Gorgeous nose; clean and brilliant with freshness intertwined with complexity. Lemon citrus, pears and brioche here with really impressive length and balance. It has years ahead of it, though no reason not to enjoy it right now.
