Champagne Mouzon-Leroux, L'Atavique Tradition, Extra Brut
The nose is effusive with woodsmoke, floral, orchard fruit, citrus oil, and bread notes. The palate is energetic and nuanced, though without the density of the blanc de noirs L'Ineffable; here overt minerality is the core. Outward from this radiates a bright sense of fruit, acidity, succulence, and texture. It seems refined and playful at the same time. The finish is long, complex, invigorating, and pure.
