Full-bodied, vinous and textural, it's elegant and seamless, with a layered core, bright balancing acids and a delicately pearly mousse. Concluding with a long and sapid finish that certainly lives up to the cuvée's name, this is a brilliant effort from a producer that deserves to be much better known among Anglophone wine lovers.- WK
