  • Beautiful.

    Golden in the glass, with a gentle mousse. Rich, honey and yeast aroma and similar flavours in the mouth, with gentle bubbles. Very long finish.

    This was nothing like a young, lively, sparkler and more like a graceful mature Burgundy. Went very well with scallops and then chicken.

    All in all it was a pleasure to taste this - my final bottle went with style!

  • Rich golden, autolytic. Fantastic depth of flavour with yeast, biscuit there. Although the bubbles dissipated fairly quickly it was still sparkling after a couple of hours and just got better and better over the evening with ever richer aroma and flavor coming through

  • More bubbles in the glass than the last reviewer! Rich, golden, very good. Will do proper notes when we open the next bottle...

  • Appreciable pressure under the cork, but no visible bubbles in the glass. Quite a dumb nose. On sniffing, a faint core of rich gold fruit, but little else. The taste is a different matter. The mousse is soft but mouthfilling, rather than insistent. Good acidity remains; a quite delicious flavour of apple pie, both the filling of cooked Bramleys, and the buttery pastry, predominates. Overall, the palate is at the perfect point between youth and maturity - orchard fruits on the one hand, nutty and biscuity aromas on the other. It is quite delicious, but this wine is rather like a symphony played pianissimo. Perhaps it's just a little too long since disgorgement (bearing in mind late-disgorged champagnes have a much reduced lifespan compared to their normally-treated counterparts), or maybe this bottle is just at an introverted stage. Either way, it's still a privilege to be able to try something so rare, and I am tempted to buy two or three more bottles to discover the answer. [Berry Bros, £50, disgorged 10 October 2005]
