Tasting Notes

Light yellow-gold. Ripe peach and poached pear on the deeply perfumed nose, with complicating notes of iodine, truffle and musky flowers. Smells a lot like a Chassagne. Round, chewy and expansive, offering intense orchard fruit flavors and bracing notes of lemon pith and smoky minerals. Plays richness off vivacity and finishes with outstanding clarity and mineral-driven persistence.
Presented in a special gift box.

Reviews & Scores

This has a very nicely handled oak influence adding spices and woody notes, and there's also an array of autolysis-derived grilled darker nuts, all of which combines with lemon rind and sorbet. The palate has seamless texture, fleshy elements that still show finesse and a late flurry of warmer toasty flavors. A Champagne that's balanced beautifully with super smooth phenolics. Drink now. This vintage is made from 53% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir and 17% pinot meunier.

TASTING NOTES

Purity, bright vibrancy and focused definition belie this Champagne’s age.  This is beautifully crafted, seamless blend of apple and fig, undercut by lemon and pink grapefruit.  It has a brilliant brushstroke of chalky minerals which linger on the finish.  For something so delicate and nuanced, this has a remarkable character which has benefitted from its magnum bottling.

TASTING NOTES

A lovely light salmon pink. The nose is fresh and juicy with redcurrant and cranberry fruit. A lively limey acidity complements the red fruit beautifully and provides a perfect balance with the creamier, caramel and honey notes on the long finish. With a hint of white flowers and a wonderfully fine mousse this is very appealing and utterly delicious.
