  • Light gold colour. Honey, brioche, hazelnut, good acidity, fine mousse & great length! Outstanding vintage for Champagne. Best to serve in small white wine glass & around 8-10'C.

  • What a lovely Champagne!

    Nose is exuberant with plenty of yeast, brioche, red apples, chalk, a little gunpowder, roasted coffee beans, more apples and a bit of tropical fruits. Really good depth and complexity. This is far from the generic, boring citrus and grapefruit Champagnes!

    High acidity with a slight tartness. Medium+ bodied, medium+ intensity and a long, very dry finish.

    Will probably stay around for a couple of years, and even though the nose is pretty much perfect now, there is some edges left on the palate.

  • Opened by TLV. Fairly deep color with notes of honey, cashew, brioche and baked apple. Persistent mousse with a fine bead. The flavors on the palate mirror the bouquet, with a ginger note coming in on the finish. There's a subtle oxidized quality too (presumably specific to this particular bottle), which was a bit of a surprise and kept me from scoring this a point or two higher.

  • Tasted from a Zalto universal glass, and I must say it tasted better than the last time I had this from a regular flute. Brioche, yeast, and citrus notes. Broad shouldered and muscular, but well poised and precise. Excellent length.

  • Lovely wine, with tiny bubbles and a crisp, focused palate. Bisquit, yeast and citrus. Good length and balance, but not quite the WOW factor to justify the price.
