TASTING NOTES

"As if it were possible, the NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Substance takes things up a notch or three. Montrachet with bubbles might be a good description for this profound, utterly moving Champagne. Waves of rich, sensual fruit supported by French oak and persistent veins of minerality all come together in this deep, totally satisfying Champagne. Even with all of the richness and depth, there is no sense of heaviness at all. This is a decidedly vibrant Substance, with fewer of the more oxidative notes this solera-style Champagne sometimes presents. Readers lucky enough to find it will enjoy one of the world's truly great wines. Disgorged October 22, 2010." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Bordering on amber, this Champagne is slightly oxidized in aroma and flavor, yet fresh, with roasted nut, leather and woodsy notes. Full-bodied and firm, with a long, citrusy and woodsy aftertaste. Not a typical Champagne, yet complex and intriguing. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Disgorged 1 Feb 2005. Very complex nose. Hint of honey and green notes. White burgundy-like. Dry finish. Only just sparkling. Fresher than some Selosse bottlings." JancisRobinson.com
