This dry Champagne is therefore softly textured with an open mousse. It does however have all the fine, tight minerality of great Chardonnay in Champagne and will surely develop further. Drink from 2021. ROGER VOSS

Offering up a lovely bouquet of fresh peach, lemon oil, white flowers and hints of the elegantly nutty complexity to come, the wine is medium to full-bodied and textural but incisive, with a creamy low-pressure mousse, a tight-knit core that needs a little time on cork to unwind and an elegantly chalky finish. - William Kelley

It was disgorged in September of 2019 and finished this year with a dosage of three grams per liter. It offers up a lovely bouquet of pear, delicious apple, chalky minerality, a touch of bread dough, white flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and sleek in profile, with a fine core, excellent mineral undertow, refined mousse and outstanding length and grip on the nascently complex and beautifully balanced finish. This bottling is finished at four bars of pressure, rather than the customary six, which makes it fairly approachable out of the blocks, despite the wine being built to age long and gracefully.

A fine chinalike frame of acidity creates a mouthwatering impression on minerally finish. Disgorged Summer 2020. Drink now through 2024. – AN

Composed mostly of Cramant fruit along with grapes from other grand cru villages that have been fermented in stainless steel, and given a very low dosage before shipping.
