  • Closure: Cork

A lacy mousse shows good hold over a pale straw coloured base that’s finely threaded by a steady stream of tiny bubbles. Elevated aromatics of baked bread and ripe citrus are intertwined with yeast lees, brioche, light honeyed cashews and faint toast notes. Refined and sophisticated the palate is eloquently dressed with citrus, baked bread, yeast lees and subtle toast flavours that have an understated richness. Subtle cashew, traces of dried honey and biscuity almond characters make an appearance on the long dry finish. Light airy feel with a gentle creaminess to the texture. Racy acidity lends focus to the powerful yet elegant conclusion.
Cellar 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
A classic, slow-maturing year picked into October. It's a pale, pristine hue - a beautifully assembled mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Aÿ, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy, Verzenay and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, combining saline-wrapped orchard fruits with great Pinot Noir subtlety yet strength. THE aperitif Champagne, but also try with sea trout.

An elegant Champagne, powered by a sculpted frame of acidity and minerality, this wears the refined, lacy mousse and well-meshed flavors of black currant, lemon curd, toast and marzipan like finely tailored clothing. Fresh and lasting, with hints of spice and smoke on the finish. Disgorged August 2016. Drink now through 2033.
