There's an understated vibrancy to this well-integrated wine, with pastry, green pear, fresh greens and lemon zest notes shaping its subtle layers of flavor. A briny minerality runs through the wine, emerging on the smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019. 200 cases imported. -AN

Austere up front, this wine's tight floral scents open to a splash of color in the finish, as vivid as a 1960s Marimekko print. The lasting impression is bold and creamy. Decant it for seared scallops and truffled... Austere up front, this wine's tight floral scents open to a splash of color in the finish, as vivid as a 1960s Marimekko print. The lasting impression is bold and creamy. Decant it for seared scallops and truffled mashed potatoes.

Complex aromas of brioche, lemon rind, pear and yellow rose, with suave lees and honey undertones. Fleshy and broad, with gentle acidity reining in sweet orchard fruit and citrus flavors. The toasty note returns on the long, sappy, intriguingly smoky finish. Drinkable now as there's plenty going on, but this will repay patience. -Josh Raynolds

60% chardonnay, 40% pinot noir. Grapes from the crus of Avize, Cramant and Ay. Named after Louise Pommery who is said to have developed the term "brut" as dry Champagne became in vogue.

Named after Louise Pommery who is said to have developed the term "brut" as dry Champagne became in vogue. Very good effervescence, pure and focused notes of white florals, honey-drenched apricots and roasted nuts is most present, quite different from the juicier style of the "Brut Royal". Of medium weight and body, these flavors fan out across the palate with an element of freshly shaved sandalwood providing intrigue through to a lovely finish. (L91805)
