Champagne, FRANCE
$125. 00
$1500.00 Dozen
Cellar: Drink now - 6 Years (2023-2029)
ABV: 12.5%
Closure: Diam Cork

A blend of 44% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 24% Pinot Meunier aged for 6 years on lees. A frothy head slowly dissipates over a pale straw coloured base. Pale gold tinged edges with a very fine bead showing good persistence through its core. Citrus, baked bread, yeast lees and brioche scents make their way out of the glass with ample intensity. Hints of honeyed cashew and ginger lend further complexity. Vibrant pear and citrus fruits are intermeshed with baked apple, yeast lees, almond and chalk characters. Finishes dry, faintly creamed and invigorating.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 12.5%

Other Reviews….
A firm, focused Champagne, with a pleasing crunchiness to the fine mousse. Reveals a toasty edge, with notes of smoke, brioche and vanilla showing up front, before transitioning to underscore and enrich flavors of nectarine and plum fruit, salted almond, lemon curd and anise as they expand through the creamy finish. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Disgorged February 2022. Drink now through 2033.

Wine Spectator

The 2015 Extra-Brut Grand Vintage is a terrific choice for drinking now, as it is so expressive. Baked apple tart, spice, lemon confit, marzipan and a hint of toastiness are front and center. Open-knit and engaging, the 2015 is a Champagne of pure and total pleasure. Drink 2022-2030.

Antonio Galloni – Vinous

Produced from 44% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay, and the rest Meunier, the 2015 Champagne Grand Vintage Extra Brut pours a medium golden-straw hue and is opulent on opening with toasty aromas of baked bread, spiced orange peel, marzipan, and dried peach. Full-bodied, with a pillowy mouthfeel, it has a very nice balance of ripe fruit while retaining freshness Silky textured, its notes of citrus oils and orchard fruits last through the finish. This elegant and warming wine would do fantastically well moving into these cooler fall and winter months. Although I personally enjoy where this is for drinking now, it should hold up over the coming 6-8 years. Disgorged February 2022. Drink 2023-2031.
