Bright gold color with sharp and refined bubbles. Aromas were mainly dry toast and mineral driven with other tastes of chalk, roasted nuts, sliced ginger and some crushed lime. This is definitely a champagne for people that enjoy more dry type styles rather than sweet or fruit driven.
This continues to come off as chalky and restrained. Minerally pear, yellow apple, cut flowers. Elegant and classy, but there's a lot in reserve that will emerge with patience. I'd give this another year before again trying.
Domaine Champagne tasting: Light yellow. Fruity nose, brioche, toast. Salty palate, seemed rich in the beginning, but it wasn't comparing it to the bottles that followed. Accidity seemed medium, some dust and mushrooms on the palate. It was nice, but didn't stand out - discreet style of Champagne in my book.
Been about a year and a half since my last bottle of this…..and it looks like the intense freshness is still there, along with a little more complexity. If you are a bubble decanter, i'd do it with this one…otherwise let it open for awhile….very intense citrus cut! Crisp orchard fruit, green apple, pear…bright lemon citrus, ginger ale freshness. Bubbles are on full dance mode…nice airy ginger vanilla mousse, with some truffle now sneaking in, along with the sea salted caramel. The tastiest part is the white flower/ honeysuckle florals and chalky minerals….balanced well with sweet fruit, acidity and lees. Again….Louis Carillon BBM with bubbles! Great stuff!
