This is one of the finest champagnes we have tried in decades. Corpulent, wine-like and extraordinarily complex, it satiates the palate with elegance and harmony. Everything about it is majestic. The olfactory senses are fascinated as they admire the abundant sensations produced: raisins, dried apricots, strawberries, hazelnut and butter cause the mind to start to dream. The depth, character, nuances and fantasy on the palate further the sensation: dried plums, orange peel, menthol… and the refinement that distinguishes only the greatest vintages. The color, in harmony with the personality of the champagne, is 100% wood-finished mature pinot noir – old gold with brilliant grey and gold reflections.
