With a fine sense of maturity, this is rich, toasty, full-bodied and concentrated. It is a Champagne with weight, showing pink grapefruit, melon and green plum flavors inside an intense texture. At the end, acidity combines with a fine toasty flourish.
Allen Meadows, Burghound
An expressive nose of lemon, green apple and soft baked bread nuances leads to a very rich and full-flavored mid-palate as the relatively high proportion of pinot noir is definitely evident. There is ample mousse and when coupled with the marked pinot character it combines to create a distinctive Champagne of excellent depth if not necessarily great refinement. This could easily be enjoyed now or held for another few years first.

(65% Pinot noir from Ay and Verzenay and 35% Chardonnay from Avize and Cramant): Pale yellow. Spicy pear and orange aromas are complicated by notes of beeswax, chamomile and anise, with a nutty overtone. Dry and expansive, offering pliant orchard and citrus fruit flavors and a touch of green almond. Shows a subtle herbal quality on the finish, which clings with good authority.

Fresh and mouthwatering, with flavors of Gala apple, blackberry, lemon meringue, almond and a hint of bread dough. A well-balanced, aperitif-style version.
