Importer's notes: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay Produced entirely from Grand Cru grapes from the village of Ambonnay, this stunning Brut Tradition shows rich, leesy fruit obtained through extended bottle aging prior to disgorging. Quite vinous in texture, it is full and long with crisp apple fruit notes on the finish and showing some toasty notes in the nose. Very low dosage levels allow the great Ambonnay fruit to shine.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
Light yellow-gold. Pungent citrus pith and pear on the floral-accented nose. Juicy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering deep lemon curd and bitter pear skin flavors, with a touch of cherry pit. A nervy mineral note adds bite and an edge to a nicely brisk, persistent finish.
