The NV Extra Brut Tradition L'Atavique is a fine introduction to this range from Sebastien Mouzon. Deep and expansive, with terrific energy, the Atavique captures the wiry intensity of Verzy nicely. The low dosage style emphasizes that further. Lemon confit, dried flowers and chamomile linger on the taut finish.
