    (NV Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru) Lots of toffee character on the nose, recent malolactic perhaps, and a rich aroma of baked nuts. It has a fine character on the palate, starting off in a gentle fashion, then broadening out to show a very good depth, and flavours of spiced nuts and baked lemons. This substance carries through onto a persistently nutty finish. Clean, finely structured, this has good potential.

    (NV Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru) Depth and character on the nose here, some greenness of fruit but this is just a hallmark of youth I think. Very clean style. Served very cold. It is fresh, full, very nicely composed, with sharp acidity. This has great cellaring potential, but at the moment it is very closed and primary, but it has all the requirements for it to blossom with time.
