With 12% alcohol, costing $40, and scoring a positive 16+ points on the Dionysian scale of a possible 20, the NV Domaine Bruno Gobillard Vieilles Vignes Champagne is a smart buy.
It is toasty, refreshing with citrus and French bread on the nose, and finishes clean with minerality.
Made from 60% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir, and 20% Pinot Meunier. It was disgorged in March of 2013 having two full years on its lees. With just 9 grams of residual sugar, this dry refreshing Champagne is a must buy. In Vino Veritas.
