WTN: Michel Turgy Reserve Selection BdB Brut NV

Postby Bill Hooper » Mon Jan 01, 2007 5:08 am

Mesnil sur Oger GC but without any character. This grower Blanc de Blancs came highly recommended. Good, but certainly not great. Lighter bodied and frothy pear and yellow apple fruit and plum flesh. There is absolutely zero minerality and yeasty goodness. I was hoping for a little Blanc de Blancs white chocolate and vanilla but to no avail. It's all fruit and no depth. 12% Alc. $45 -I've had worse, but...


Prost!
