Inflorescence "Val Vilaine" comes from a vineyard of Pinot Noir planted in 1974. It's designed to be Bouchard's "apéritif" Champagne, more fruit forward and less concentrated and intense than the wines he labels under the Roses de Jeanne label. 2011 Inflorescence Val Vilaine is quite honeyed and tropical while still offering the blue and red berries that we loved in 2010. It's a ripe example of this wine that in some ways is better thought of as a Burgundy with bubbles! There's pronounced and delicious earthiness and limestone-y minerality to the wine's finish that we'd also say is more typical of Burgundy than Champagne. MSB
