Laetitia Brut Cuvee Usa California Central Coast Sparkling Wine Pinot Noir Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc NV

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The oak-raised NV Brut Cuvee Laetitia is another explosive, kaleidoscopic Champagne from Billiot. This is the only wine in the lineup made principally from Chardonnay and is a solera-style Champagne containing 20 vintages beginning with the most recent, 2005, and dating back to 1983... the aromatics meld seamlessly into a palate of rich fruit that carries through all the way to the finish. The large-scaled, expansive personality of Ambonnay comes through in spades. The solera method has naturally given this wine a measure of slightly oxidative nuances, but within the context of similar wines, NV Brut Cuvee Laetitia remains quite fresh and vibrant. This is a magnificent effort from Billiot. Disgorged: June 10, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019. (Dec 2009)
