Graphite, vanilla, candied berry and gingerbread notes combine in this firm, lively Champagne. Elegant and supple, with a chalk-like sensation on the finish.
"This, the 73rd vintage is composed of 50% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Meunier. This has lovely weight, and with a dosage of just 5 g/litre seems quite dry and focused. There’s some lemon and cherry character to the fruit, with a twist of baked apple and pear richness. There’s just a touch of pithy bitterness, but it holds the slight fruit sweetness in good tension. There’s definitely a ripeness to the fruit, which is dominant, but there’s also some faint toasty richness. 92/100" Jamie Goode wineanorak.com
An indulgent aperitif but with the structure and complexity to match with food. When young match with fish dishes and duck and move on to truffles and cheeses with a decades bottle age.
