Tasting Notes

From one of the very finest vintages of the past three decades this is already oozing with class and sensuous appeal. It is marvellously complex with ripe aromas of ripe orchard fruit and zesty citrus. The palate just continues the seduction with an array of flavours that reminds you why Champagne is one of the noblest wines of all.

Reviews & Scores

Attractive lime pickle and grapefruit on the nose with a light pastry and spiced berry edge. The palate has intense, punchy appeal, with succulent and powerful fruit and acid drive. Stony finish. Drink now.
94 Points, James Suckling


58% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir. Aim here is to highlight Chardonnay from Cumières, which has only 19% of the planted area. Selection from three lieux-dits in Cumières with particularly chalky soils. 45% made in demi-muid barrels using only the first juice with most finesse from the pressing. No malo. Dosage 6 g/l. Dancing, lively, polished, creamy fruit. (Quite a contrast with the more rugged style of the Lassaigne 2008.) Luxurious and lively. Open. Drink 2017-2025.
