Elegant beads and overall carbonation. Smooth, creamy, full of overripe yellow fruit and, perhaps a touch of oxidation or modernization. Serious and focused Leclapart seems to care very little about the “commercial” side of things and sticks to the terroir-level thinking. For that, much respect and yearning for more bottles.
