The NV Brut Cuvée Laetitia is superb in this release. Deep, powerful and intense, the Laetitia is absolutely striking from the very first taste. Scents of pear, mint and sage add to the wine's eccentric yet captivating personality. In particular, the wine's vertical structure really seems to give the wine energy in all directions. This release is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, based on 2013, with 40% reserve wines from 2012 through 2010. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged: April 2016.
