Yeasty, structured, and focused on the palate, the Brut X MV wine from Soter is a combination of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, is hand riddled, and spends 4 years en tirage. A scant 3g of residual sugar helps to balance out the elevated acidity. Notes of yeasty bread dough, lemon peel, raw tree nuts, and pear juice are all present on the nose while the palate brings aspects of honey-coated pear and a hint of raspberry essence. The mousse is delicate and lively, and it delivers a wonderful, almost tannin-like, finish. 290 cases produced.
