This shimmers with its flavors of apple and lime, its hint of toast and its soft finish. It’s finely balanced, a great selection that is ready to drink now.

Elegant with lovely texture and focused lively acidity. Flavors of currant candied lemon zest honey and white peach lead to the creamy biscuit-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019. 5000 cases imported. - AN

Intense aromas of dried citrus fruits and pear with deeper peach and honey nuances gaining strength in the glass. Deeply pitched and chewy in texture offering broad orchard and pit fruit flavors and a hint of bitter citrus zest. Finishes with very good length and energy leaving buttered toast and lees notes behind. This Champagne seems to be approaching its drinking window.

The delicate yet focused bouquet highlights aromas of toasty citrus along with hints of yeast and popcorn. Light-medium bodied the firm palate highlights dried apples and pears mingled with hints of sweet spice. As the flavors develop towards the backpalate the textures turn round and viscous with a finish that is both soft and fruity as it lingers pleasantly.

A pale Champagne with bright scents of citrus balancing almond skin flavors, this is tightly focused by acidity with glints of limestone. The wine’s complex fruit esters finish with a sense of clarity. This will build on its richness with cellar time.

Delicately scented, lightly floral. Very pretty on the nose. Then rich and dense on the palate. Creamy, full in the mouth and rounded on the finish. Excellent intensity. 17.5/20 (JH)

A sweet, floral bouquet melds into expressive fruit in this refreshing, vibrant Champagne. Crisp green pears, jasmine and apples are some of the notes that linger on the crisp, well-articulated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019. - Antonio Galloni
