TASTING NOTES

"The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is from Chardonnay grapes sourced in Avize, Chouilly, Cramant and Mesnil-sur-Oger. Based on the 2013 harvest plus 30% reserve wines and fermented in stainless steel, this blend opens with an amazingly pure but intense and deep bouquet with yellow-fleshed fruit aromas intermixed with chalky and lemony notes as well as hints of orange blossoms and iodine. Full-bodied and intense yet pure and finessed on the palate this is a rich yet very precise and elegant Blanc de Blancs with a persistent structure and a long, dense, almost lush finish. This is lot L 196F889 45576 (disgorged in April 2018), tasted in November 2018." Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"Chalky aromas and dried white flowers with hints of lemon blossom and fresh pastry. The palate has a super fine feel to it. Dosage is nicely judged to coax out some depth in the citrusy, fresh-cut apple fruit. Finishes fresh, long and lively. Drink now." JamesSuckling.com

"Light yellow-gold. High-pitched citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by notes of honeysuckle, lemongrass and chalky minerals. Spicy, focused and mineral-driven, with intense Meyer lemon, tangerine and pear skin flavors given depth by a hint of brioche. A note of smokiness builds on the finish, which hangs on with outstanding floral persistence." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"Bright, intense fruit on the nose. Broad, toasty and expansive. Very long. Elegant. Lots to chew on." JancisRobinson.com
