The base wine on this beauty is the superb 2002 vintage, and the wine is absolutely brilliant. The deep, pure and utterly classic nose soars from the glass in a smoky blaze of white peach, gentle tangerine, warm biscuits, chalky minerality, discreet white flowers and the aforementioned smokiness in abundance. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and still strikingly young, with a great core, elegant mousse, and outstanding cut and grip on the very, very long, mineral bath of a finish. There is a vibrancy to the expression of terroir here that is otherworldly! This wine is certainly approachable today (I sincerely doubt I spit it on this morning), but it is still relatively primary in profile and five or six more years in the cellar are really going to work their magic on this utterly profound young wine. (Drink between 2020-2060)

A Blanc de Noirs from an east-facing site in the heart of Aÿ, this has depth, richness and a deeper savory edge to the nose. Aromas of dark tobacco, plenty of dry roasted spices, nut biscuits, musk and dried red fruits... A Blanc de Noirs from an east-facing site in the heart of Aÿ, this has depth, richness and a deeper savory edge to the nose. Aromas of dark tobacco, plenty of dry roasted spices, nut biscuits, musk and dried red fruits. The palate is full of compressed power, where the Mesnil lieu-dit has a verticality which pushes on a horizontal plane with boldness, density and real substance. Flavors run through striking blueberry and red apples, heading to salted caramel and praline on the finish. Commanding Champagne. Drink now.

The most rose-colored and aromatic of the three Pinots in the lieu-dit collection, the NV Extra-Brut Mareuil sur Aÿ Sous Le Mont lifts from the glass with exotic aromatics and delicate fruit. Gracious and feminine in style, the Sous Le Mont nevertheless possesses terrific energy and cut. I am not sure there is much upside from cellaring bottles further, but this year's release is a big step up from some of the earlier versions. That much is clear. Disgorged April 14, 2014 and bottled with no dosage.

The (2010) Extra-Brut Mareuil-sur-Aÿ Sous Le Mont is terrific. The non-dosage style works very well here, something that has not been the case in some previous years, when more animal and vegetal notes have dominated the wine’s balance. There is little of that here. Instead the Sous Le Mont impresses with its bright, high-toned flavors and overall poise. Mint, cranberry, white pepper and dried flowers are nicely delineated. As always, the Sous Le Mont has a slightly oxidative (but not unpleasant) quality. This is an especially fine edition. Disgorged December 2016 with no dosage.
