Mineral-tinged peach, melon and pear aromas display excellent clarity, picking up a subtle floral quality with aeration. Supple and seamless on the palate, offering vivid honeydew and pit fruit flavors accented by a vibrant lemon zest quality. Finishes very long, silky and precise, with an echo of juicy melon and strong mineral lift. -- Josh Raynolds

Like the dosage, the nose is notably restrained as well with its soft aromas of green apple, brioche, yeast and lemon zest. There is good verve to the delicious flavors where the underlying effervescence is really quite fine, all wrapped in a cool, pure, linear and markedly dry finale. This understated effort is an exercise in refinement and will likely best please those who enjoy more delicate examples. now+

A streak of smoky mineral underscores the pretty floral, ripe apple and pastry notes of this fresh, open-knit Champagne. A hint of toasted hazelnut rides the fine bead through to the finish. Drink now through 2018. 7,200... A streak of smoky mineral underscores the pretty floral, ripe apple and pastry notes of this fresh, open-knit Champagne.
