Graham Beck Brut Zero 2009

Brut Zero represents the ultimate transparency in premium Methode Cap Classique. This extra special cuvee was created without the use of dosage resulting in a deliciously different and more natural style of bubbly. With no added sugar, what remains is a sparkling wine in its purist form. This style of wine can only be made in truly exceptional vintages. This exceptional and highly exclusive wine (a blend of 87% Chardonnay and 13% Pinot Noir) remained on the lees for 72 months (six years) before disgorgement. Elegant, fresh and lively, the Brut Zero is a study in rich minerality. Fresh green apples and hints of brioche, citrus and barely perceptible iris perfume develop on the mid-palate as the wine is left to stand. Brut Zero joins the ranks of the very few zero dosage wines these having been almost non-existent a few years ago. [+]
