Some very attractive aromas of white peaches and lemon cream with striking purity and gently nutty, savory notes. The palate has a very fleshy opening with a supple, smooth feel and an elegant, creamy, blood-orange core that flows long into the dry, fresh and quite chalky finish. Drink or hold.

Sweet floral and minty overtones give the Vénus its distinctive high-toned profile. The richness and depth of this Chardonnay from a parcel planted in 1959 that has always been manually farmed, comes alive with a bit of time in the glass. The Vénus is such a special Champagne, as it is elusive and constantly changing in the glass as it shows a different side of its personality with each taste. I very much admire the sense of precision here. Vénus remains one of the most distinctive wines in all of Champagne. No dosage. Disgorged: May, 2019. -- Antonio Galloni
