Smoke, slate, crushed rocks, white pepper and lemon confit are all vivid in this striking, wonderfully nuanced Champagne. Dosage of just two grams per liter is expertly judged in a Blanc de Blancs that really sizzles with energy. This release is 70% 2016 and 30% perpetual reserve going back to 1986. Disgorged: December, 2018. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

Opening up to reveal scents of crisp green apples, white flowers, walnuts and a subtle touch of fino sherry, it's full-bodied, layered and incisive, with a deep, concentrated and muscular profile despite its racy acids and precise, undeniably mineral finish. - William Kelley collapse

It was finished with a dosage of two grams per liter and disgorged in December of 2016. The bouquet is now starting to show some secondary layers in its complex mix of pear, delicious apple, brioche, lovely, chalky soil tones, a whisper of oak and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core, elegant mousse, bright, seamless acids and excellent length and grip on the complex and bone dry finish. The combination of the extended bottle age and the thirty percent reserve wines from the solera allows for the very low dosage to work beautifully, and this wine is drinking beautifully today and is really at its best served at the table throughout the meal. Fine juice. collapse
