This champagne presents itself in a ravishing pale yellow robe with topaz nuances. Time has used its patina to reveal the wine’s complexity. Hawthorn blends with acacia honey, beeswax, and marzipan. When it is aerated, the wine resumes its murmurings, quince jelly meets raspberry jam and alternates with bergamot and warm brioche. On the palate it is invigorating, imposing and it teases the taste buds. The bead caresses and balances wild strawberry jam with ripe blood orange. This harmony is extended in a delicate minerality and a lovely bitterness in which hints of mandarin orange come through.

Ideal as an aperitif. Goes perfectly with bouillon of crayfish and grapefruit, poached turbot with sauce hollandaise, scallop carpaccio, rack of lamb with foie gras, creamed Bresse fowl with truffles, mountain comte at least 18 months old.

Wine Spectator - 94 Points

Very minerally on the nose, with brine and smoke accents leading to flavors of cassis, mandarin orange peel and dried white cherry on the buoyant, creamy mousse. Bright and harmonious, with a rich, lasting finish of toast, chopped hazelnut and spice. Disgorged May 2015. Drink now through 2028.
Wine Enthusiast - 94 Points
This ripe wine offers great balance between the rich, structured Pinot Noir and the mineral Chardonnay. From a very fine vintage, it reveals intense flavors, layers of ripe apple and a taut texture that promises further aging. The wine can be drunk now, but it will be so much better from 2018.
James Suckling - 92 Points
This has a vibrant and fresh feel with a lively, strawberry nose and a pastry-like edge. The palate is very supple and succulent with fresh, sweet peaches and citrus fruit. Very fleshy and lively attitude. Gentle cashew to close. Drink or hold.
Decanter - 92 Points
Dynamic drive and energy and delightful complexity of flavours, from lemon curd, marzipan and grapefruit to baked black cherry and ripe plum fruit; great persistence.
