Pure, crystalline. I only had a sip, but this was impeccable, clean and long.

Very yeasty on the nose with Granny Smith Apple notes and pronounced minerality. 94% Pinot Meunière 2% Pinot Gris, 2% Chardonnay, and 2% Pinot Noir. Wild fermented and aged 10 months in barrels; 2.5grams/Litre dosage. Only 13,000 bottles made so it is difficult to source in Australia. Consumed this Champagne in Zalto Burgundy glasses like I had been advised to do with Jacques Selosse, a close colleague of Jerome Prevost. As both of these producers say these are wines first and Champagnes second so why not Burgundy glasses. Finishes very dry with cleansing acid. LC14 - year of harvest. Good and different.

BYO Prevost to Tulum is always a good idea. As much as I know I should wait, can’t help myself - 14s are delish. And word to the pairing-wise, champagne and yucatecan food are a knockout combo.

Plnejsi, uz komplexnejsi, je videt, ze rocnik je rozhodujici. 2015 byla jeste mlada, 2013 mi prisla stejne kremovejsi. Toto neco mezi :) Velmi dobre az skvele. Trochu kourovejsi, proto mi prijde 2013 lepsi.

Rose petals, lemons, and then a pop of grapefruit. I like it. I want more to drink
