Round, elegant and intense, with great finesse and persistence in the finish, this is a remarkable rich, complex and highly elegant Champagne. It has some nutty and lingering mineral flavors in the finish. Great ageing potential, with great precision and complexity. The blend is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, with 100% selection massale (45-years-old vines), and was disgorged in June 2015 with eight grams per liter of dosage. - Stephan Reinhardt collapse

Soft, open-knit and inviting, the 2011 possesses lovely balance and class. The aromatics are a bit diffuse and also forward, which suggests the 2011 won’t be an especially long-lived wine, yet all the elements are very nicely balanced. Most importantly, there are no signs of the greenness that plagues many 2011s. Those notes may show up in time, so I would not push my luck in cellaring the 2011 for more than a few years. Lemon confit, dried flowers, chamomile and sage linger in the background. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. Disgorged November 2015. -- Antonio Galloni collapse
