Exceptional way to cap off the evening; sure the nose outperformed but it set a very high bar — a month ago
Not all rosé champagnes are made equally. For every limp and cloying there are real gems like this. Pale pink with orange highlights. Persistent perlage with small fine bubbles and a creamy mousse. A rich nose showing slivered almonds and fresh strawberries. White peaches and some really nice rhubarb.
Based “mostly” on the 2015 vintage, this is unmistakably Chardonnay dominant, 60% with the rest composed of the two Pinots. More full bodied than you may expect and with a significant streak of freshness running throughout. A lowish dosage allows the terroir to speak clearly. Very generous, the midpalate offers warm spice and racy acidity.
An abundance of red fruit and depth takes this to another level. Ripe red cherries and grapefruit steal the show with a dollop of apples. Mint and smoke along with yellow raisins and toasty bread. Medium long finish. It’s easy to say let these sit to continue to mature but I say go for it. You won’t regret it. — 2 months ago
Wow, this one knocked my socks off. Such an interesting beeswax character, powerful flavor yet elegant. Pricey but worth it, definitely something to seek out. Best champagne I’ve had in a long time and I’m lucky to drink it often! — 5 months ago
A bit heavy tart upfront that dissipates quickly. Flavor profile is deeper/darker making it less refreshing than others. Would be nice for a cold day. Finish is clean. — 2 months ago

50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Disgorged 9/2018. Mostly fruit from 2015. Saline and mineral with slight oxidation. Excellent with food. Punches above its price point. — 5 months ago
