2021/9/18-19 as an aperitif, etc. At the moment, this feels more primary and less layered than the Clous Aime - I’d be interesting to try it again in a couple of years. — 4 months ago

Gourmet vintage, young vines in the making with the markers of Syrah that we like to find: violets, black fruits, pepper, light smoke. Soft, straight and balanced mouth.
Cuvée gourmande, à priori de jeunes vignes en devenir avec les marqueurs de la Syrah qu’on aime retrouver: violettes, fruits noirs, poivre, léger fumé. Bouche souple, droite et équilibrée. — 3 months ago
Wow just wow. Really incredible stuff happening here. A medium straw color in the glass with effusive small bubbles that are plentiful. Unmistakably Côte des Blancs on the nose with delicate white tea and minerality initially. Pears, green apples, and the suggestion of caramel. Seriously these aromas are amazing. Right out of the gate and this is already a spectacular champagne.
You have to love these champagnes with a large amount of reserve wine. Mainly based on the 2013 vintage but with 24% from 2012 and 27% from 2014. From Premier Cru plots in Vertus, Villeneuve, and Mont Aime. Really nice acidity that is zippy but not quite bracing despite the 3.5 g/l dosage. Three years on lees which contributes to the maturity and stately nature of the wine.
Medium bodied with clear finesse throughout. When it touches your tongue, you will be excited. A citrus heavy palate featuring honey and herbs. A touch of pepper along with some earth notes. Ridiculously long finish. This is a master crafted champagne. One I could honestly drink all the time. — 4 months ago
Well aged in Magnum format. A very beautiful beaujolese vintage who pinotes as we like. Notes of grape variety: cherries, rose petals and iris.. Beautiful notes of evolution dried flowers, truffled, humus. The 2015 density and the evolving aerial nuances of gamay form a rich and refined bouquet. Very greedy. Interesting final for this type of wine.
Bienn vieilli en format Magnum. Un beau cru du beaujolais qui pinote comme on aime. Notes du cepage: cerises, griottes, pétales de rose et iris.. Notes d’évolution: fleurs séchées, truffées, humus. La densité de 2015 et les nuances évolutives aériennes du gamay forment un bouquet riche et raffiné. Très gourmand. Finale intéressante pour ce type de vin. — 9 months ago
