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.
Presented in a special gift box.

Reviews & Scores

The 2006 Brut Millésime de Collection Vieilles Vignes de Chardonnay (Magnum) is powerful, masculine and also a touch austere, but offers tremendous thrust and overall intensity. This is an especially large-scaled, creamy old-vine Champagne from Gimonnet. From magnum it should drink well for another decade or so. The Vieilles Vignes de Chardonnay emerges from parcels in Cramant and Chouilly (both Grand Cru villages) and Cuis, a 1er Cru village. 
92 Points, Antonio Galloni
