Lively orange, Meyer lemon, ginger and floral aromas show impressive power and purity. Taut, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit flavors are underscored by a chalky mineral quality and given spine by tangy acidity. Closes bright and long, with resonating spiciness and floral character. This Champagne has barely budged since this time last year.

A red-fruited blanc de blancs, this is saturated with flavor yet extremely dry and mouthwatering. Scents of cider apple and toasty lees balance fresher white raspberry flavors, combining in a substantial wine with extraordinary length of flavor. It has the drive of the 2002 vintage in a style suited for ready enjoyment over the next five years.

Pale straw in color with very fine bubbles. Aromas of white pepper, a touch of brine and high-toned spice are intertwined with a kernel of fruit. However, a sweet chalk aroma reminiscent of Chablis dominates the bouquet... Pale straw in color with very fine bubbles. Aromas of white pepper, a touch of brine and high-toned spice are intertwined with a kernel of fruit. However, a sweet chalk aroma reminiscent of Chablis dominates the bouquet. A fleshier blanc de blancs, this offers ripe flavors of pear and peach, while the core of fruit flows seamlessly towards a tighter, more focused finish laced with fruit.
