Chaine d'Etoiles Brut Reserve NV

Well, I tried this wine blind and thought it was a Bollinger NV, and I like Bollinger.  So, surprise then, here I am about to say good things about it.  A yeasty, grassy aroma was met with a good bead, good acidity and only 5g/l dosage.  The blend is 50% pinot meunier, 35% chardonnay and 15% pinot noir.  Lovely stuff.  87 points (7.2/10)

Abv: 12%
Price: I am told around $50
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
Website: Couldn't find, but here's the importer's http://www.echelonwine.com.au/wines/chaine_detoiles.html
