WA91 Disgorged in March 2021, the latest rendition of Vesselle’s NV Brut Réserve is showing nicely, offering up aromas of pear, honeycomb, freshly baked bread and warm biscuits. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and precise, its nicely concentrated core of fruit is girdled by bright acids and complemented by a pinpoint mousse.
