Howard Park Petit Jeté Brut Blanc NV

100% Chardonnay here from the highly regarded Howard Park Wines and Burch family. Based on the 2019 vintage (some parcels of fruit underwent malolactic fermentation for extra complexity) and spending 21 months on lees.

Howard Park Petit Jeté NV

I do like a BdB style. Richness of honeycomb, brioche and bread crust with gun flint, whipped cream, spiced warm apple and peachy stone fruit. Very good structure. Harmony between textural elements, a well formed mid palate with expressive mousse and keen acidity through the tail. Fine value.

RRP: $32
Alc: 12%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
