"The 2015 Extra Brut Les Orizeaux (Pinot Noir) is brighter and more intensely saline than the Couarres tasted alongside it. Pinot bristles with real tension and cut in the Orizeaux. Crushed rocks, slate, mint, sweet red cherry and tobacco abound, but it is the wine’s translucence and vibrancy that make it so beguiling. Alexandre Chartogne nailed the 2015. Don’t miss it. Dosage is 3 grams per liter. Disgorged: June, 2020."
