Produced from grand cru vineyards, it already balances ripe white fruits with a firm structure that will age well. It's relatively dry and has plenty of acidity, which will also aid in the longevity. Drink from 2022. ROGER VOSS

This is a solid and very dense Champagne with a phenolic and rich texture. Layers of cooked apples and light lemon rind. Brioche and light pie-crust in the aftertaste. Fresh and relatively dry aftertaste.

Complex and nuanced, with tons of class, the 2008 has so much to offer. Dried pear, mint, chamomile, crushed rock, dried flowers and pastry overtones are all laced together in this finely-knit, resonant Champagne. At $75.00 a bottle, Laurent-Perrier’s Brut Millésimé is one the best widely available vintage Champagne readers find from this historic harvest. -- Antonio Galloni

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, with an elegantly layered core, a fine, pinpoint mousse and racy balancing acids, concluding with a long and incipiently biscuity finish. This is a classy vintage Champagne that will develop beautiful complexity in the cellar. - WK

It was a long growing season in 2008, with nothing excessive or unusual, and it has engendered wines of complexity and impressive length.

Disgorged in July 2018 with 8g of sugar, this is a wonderfully poised blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. Generous of colour and with forward toasty aromas, the wine is thereafter softer, more refined and elegant, with grapefruit notes ceding to a bed of dried almonds and summer flowers. Michel maintains that the Chardonnay is in the ascendant at the moment but, with time, emerging biscuity and savoury elements will be down to the latent power of the Pinot Noir. (Drink between 2019-2025)

It’s smoky and chalky, a sleek wine to enjoy now, with rich shellfish.
