Hure Freres N.V. "Memoire" Extra Brut Champagne
Brothers Francois and Pierre Hure are the third generation to be making Champagne at this tiny estate. Practicing organic and biodynamic farming, they are champions of the soil. 45% Pinot Noir, 45% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay, this is a solera blend that started with the 1982 vintage and each year a little wine from the current vintage is added to the blend. This is a truly serious and complex grower Champagne. Notes of baked apples, acacia, roasted nuts, dried fruits and toasted butter rolls. The layering here is amazing and the finish goes on forever. Nerdy but oh so extraordinary! Only 250 cases made.
