Champagne Goustan Val Frison Blanc de Noirs

100% Pinot Noir sourced from three vineyards  Les Clos de la Côte, La Chevétrée, and La Ville whose soils are composed of Kimmeridgian limestone, the predominant soil type of the Aube. The 2012 Goustan balances the ripeness and power of Pinot Noir grown in this terroir with a pungent sense of minerality. The nose is redolent of red and hedge fruits with notes of wet stone. The palate is dense with raspberry, malt, and great mineral intensity. The finish is persistent and expansive with a nearly salty stoniness dominating. This is an exciting Blanc de Noirs which tempers its power with deftly poised minerality. John McIlwain
