While not a blockbuster the wine reveals an engaging harmonious personality. The open inviting bouquet leads to an expressive generous core of fruit with pretty notes of early tertiary character that add complexity. Brioche hazelnuts dried pears and dried apricots linger on a long beautifully articulated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014. No disgorgement date available.

A mix of apricot dried cherry and lemon aromas and flavors are sharply etched and there's a grainy texture to this bubbly which has intensity even if it is a bit chunky. Drink now through 2018.

Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice with consistent notes. -BS

It works here the structure and the toast all giving a mouthfeel of Burgundy. The acidity of course is characteristic of Champagne but it is well integrated into the yeast the green stone fruits and the pink grapefruit freshness. R.V.

This tête- de-cuvée is aged on the lees for ten years before it released to the market. The extended aging gives this prestige wine its distinctive aromas of fresh yeast and dough along with some honeyed citrus fruits. As the wine opens up aromas of ripe pears and roasted nuts unfurl. The soft entry does not prepare you for the explosively textured flavors on the back-palate. Hard lemon candy combines with hints of caramel to bring vibrancy to the quick finish. A great food wine.
