Tasting note from from 05.08.2020, Copyright Sebastian Bordthäuser
The Yuman is the house's single-varietal base cuvée, first released in 2019. Pressed from 100% Chardonnay from pure Premier Cru sites in Vrigny, it received the tirage on 26 July 2017 before being disgorged just over three years later in May 2020. The wine contains 24mg of sulphur and is a flawless Brut Nature with zero grams of residual sugar.


Golden yellow with bright reflections and youthful impetuous perlage.


With full fruit ahead and fine spice, the 2016 Yuman Premiere Cru Brut Natur from Benoit Marguet flows into the glass. The autolysis notes are on the toasty side, more reminiscent of rye bread than brioche, and are complemented in the top notes by mild spicy notes of black cumin and white pepper. Underneath, ripe cedro lemons, candied lemon peel, red apples and green mandarins shine. A handful of river pebbles and a piece of wet chalk provide the salty foundation.


The wine oscillates between juice and salt and has plenty of both The present, fully ripe fruit is underpinned by fluffy pastry notes with a good pinch of salt in both the pastry and the layer of butter on top. The mousseux sets the pace and the ripe acidity weaves through the 2016 Yuman like a pulsating bass that rolls across the palate with good thrust. A juicy, fulminant sip of Chardonnay with plump extract, phenolic silhouette and a fundamentally positive attitude towards uninhibited hedonism.
