    October 12, 2021 - Not nearly the age, depth, and complexity this wine exhibited 5 years ago. New regime is clearly not employing reserve wine and extended again gas much as in the past.

    September 27, 2021 - (Mis en crayeres 2017, disgorged 2020). This is such a great NV champagne! Complex nose with toast, nuts, ripe fruits and a hint of spices. Good acidity, long and intense on the palate. Fruity! The style is quite easy drinking as the dosage does not seem to be quite as low as my usual preference. It really is not easy to find better value in this price range, except directly from small independent growers in Champagne.

    September 26, 2021 - Underrated Champagne house. This magnum was disgorged in 2018. Stunning nose of fresh baked pastry, brioche and lemon meringue. Bassy palate with a long finish, it's basically a baby Krug.

    September 25, 2021 - Sold as 2012 base although I didn't check, and with hindsight it tasted like relatively thin, undeveloped stuff. Two magnums drunk with consistent notes. Pretty 'meh' to be honest - main impression was that it was both slightly too acidic AND slightly too sweet on the finish. Oh well!

    September 18, 2021 - This is a very convincing and enjoyable Champagne. It is mouth-filling, fruity, lively bubbling and fresh, along with pleasant notes of minerals, baked bread and fruits. This is very good for the price, I definitely would like to buy this again.
