Malheur Brut Noir (Black Chocolate)

$24.99 for the champagne style, foiled, corked & caged 750 mL bottle. Looks mighty impressive. Enjoyed the Malheur 10 immensley so had high hopes for this one.
Good pop on the release of the cork. Pours with a dark brown/reddish color. Plenty of carbonation, but not much head or retention. Some fruity character, but it comes with some real dry character true to the Brut moniker. Alcohol prominent, but not overpowering. Lots of black grape skins and some tannin are evident.
Dry finish with a little alcohol burn.
Nice, drinkable and tasty, but rather poor value. I’d happily pay about half that price, but $25 seems a bit steep for what it is.
