Trouillard Elexium Brut
Champagne Trouillard
France - Champagne   

This cuvee combines Pinot Noir's power, Pinot Meunier's suppleness and Chardonnay's elegance to give Elexium radiance and lightness. 30-35% of reserve wines (from previous years) are incorporated into the blending.

Its aging provides beautiful citrus fruits notes, white fruits and a lightly gold color. It is beautifully intense, fresh and silky with good persistence.

Grapes are hand-harvested in the fall, then pressed immediately. Only the first press is used. Vinification in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Part of the wines is stored in the new air-conditioned facility and the other part in the cellars that are dug into the plaster. After aging, a manual (70%) and automatic (30%) remuage occures. 30-35% reserve wines are reincorporated during blending. Aged 2 years on the lees.

vinous logo"Pale silver. Vibrant scents of grapefruit, lemon and cut grass, with a chalky mineral tone; this smells like a Sancerre! Racy, firm and gently effervescent, with fresh pear and citrus flavors and a subtle note of peppery spice. The juicy citrus and racy mineral flavors carry through the tangy, persistent finish. - Josh Raynolds"
