Champagne / France
The NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru La Cote Faron is ridiculously great. Layers of fruit emerge effortlessly from this large-scaled, dramatic Champagne. The wine needs quite of time to open up, but when it does it is a stunner. This is pure Ay in its rich, voluptuous personality and creamy texture. Red berries, dried flowers, licorice, mint and licorice are layered into the rich, seductive finish. Readers who prefer a more mineral-driven style of Blanc de Noirs will prefer the Le Bout de Clos, Selosse’s wine from Ambonnay, while those who prefer a more overt expression of fruit will flip out over the Cote Faron. Either way, it’s hard to lose. They are both magnificent. Disgorged February 21st, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. Oct 2011, www.robertparker.com
