Mainly from Aÿ (with a bit of Mailly and Oger as well as Cramant) the 2008 Grand Cru Extra Brut 1522 blends 58% Pinot Noir with 42% Chardonnay and opens with a concentrated tropical fruit aroma (pineapples, stone fruits, almonds) but remains precise and chalky as well as spicy on the nose. Full-bodied, fresh and clear on the palate, with nutty and lingering mineral flavors, this is a very complex and firmly structured yet very delicate and expressively mineral Champagne with a long and tight finish. Roughly 50% aged in oak, this bottle was disgorged in March 2018 and will be released in May. Tasted at the domaine in April 2018. - 30th Jun 2018

The 2008 Cuvée 1522, tasted from magnum, is a big, big wine with tons of Pinot Noir breadth. Red plum, pepper, spice, menthol and dried pear are some of the many notes that build as this racy, voluptuous Champagne shows off its notable breadth and pure power. The 1522 captures all the intensity of the year, but in a style that won’t require more than a few years in bottle. Aÿ, Verzy and Mesnil-sur-Oger are the fruit sources. Disgorged July 2017. -- Antonio Galloni
