It boasts serious depth and textural richness for an entry-level NV bottling. Juicy peaches apricots flowers and mint are all woven together beautifully in this dramatic sweeping wine. Flinty notes frame the finish. The Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs is 100% Chardonnay predominantly from Vertus a Premier Cru village although 30% of the juice is from the Grand Cru villages of Cramant Avize and Oger. This year's version is 60% 2008 and 40% reserve wines from 2007 and 2006. Dosage was 4 grams per liter. This is Lot # LBB80211. Disgorged February 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. -Antonio Galloni

Light yellow-gold. Fresh tangerine and pit fruit aromas are complicated by notes of honeysuckle and chalky minerals. Sappy and smooth in texture with impressive depth to the tangy citrus flavors. Gains weight and heft... Light yellow-gold. Fresh tangerine and pit fruit aromas are complicated by notes of honeysuckle and chalky minerals. Sappy and smooth in texture with impressive depth to the tangy citrus flavors. Gains weight and heft with air and shows excellent clarity and power on the stony finish. This Champagne's blend of richness and energy will allow it to work with a wide range of foods.

Firm and frothy showing crisp juicy apple toasted nut citrus zest and smoky mineral hints with a moderate finish. Drink now. -AN
