Baldi - Pain N.V. Grand Cru Champagne Extra Brut
Made from 80% Grand Cru Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay and a blend of 2019 vintage and reserve wine from 2005, this is a rich and giving Champagne with amazing depth and layering. Showing an astonishing amount of baked fruit for an Extra Brut, nutty, brioche and lemon curd with a touch of salinity. Broad on the palate, expansive and here is where you taste that reserve wine as it lends a sherry like roasted nuttiness that wraps around the palate and refuses to let go. Absolutely brilliant, tiny production Champagne that I would have bought at least 10 cases of if they had it. Do not wait. It won’t be here long. Stunning wine.
