Extrait is a newly-released late-disgorged cuvée from biodynamic grower Vouette et Sorbée. The 2006 is 60% Pinot Noir 40% Chardonnay. It has a golden robe, soft mousse, and a fine bead. The nose shows aromas of Seville orange peel, cocoa, mint, with notes of autolyse. The palate offers flavors of honeycomb, orange oil, sous-bois, and stone, with hints of brine and broth on the broad, verging on muscular finish. This is vinous and comes off richer, perhaps more powerful still than the 2005. The long lees aging adds compelling layers of complexity to an already fascinating expression of Aube terroir. This is a essential drinking for fans of Vouette et Sorbée's Champagne! Disgorged 5/16 and bottled without dosage. John McIlwain
