Notes from the Importer: Hailing from the Four à Chaux vineyard in Oeuilly and based on the 2007 and 2008 vintages, BAM! (aka Benoît and Melanie) is Brut Nature Champagne reimagined and recast. The blend breakdown is 64% Petit Meslier, 18% Arbane, and 18% Pinot Blanc (aka BAM!). Full of life and verve, but a marked departure from a classical Champenois aromatic profile, the nose is expressive and floral with notes of passionflower, jasmine, and white peach blossom. Not for the meek, the palate is electric, gripping, and bursting with lime sorbet, honeyed green tea, rhubarb, papaya, and starfruit with a golden kiwi and sweet watermelon finish.
