“Disgorged in January 2018, the NV Extra Brut E´clats de Meulie`re opens in the glass with a gently reductive nose of smoky orchard fruit, wheat toast and iodine. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, with a ripe core of fruit underpinned by a tangy spine of acidity, concluding with a saline, mouthwatering finish.”
