    Winemaker's Notes:

    Very shiny golden color, with green tints. Fine regular bubbles. Delicate, young, spring-like bouquet, focusing on floral aromas (hawthorn), fresh white fruit (pear, fruit amandine) and citrus (candied lemon) with a few hints of roasted almonds. On the palate there is first of all a soft, full, creamy sensation which moves on quickly to a strong, lively, almost ‘chalky' taste — the hallmark of great Mesnil, Avize and Cramant chardonnays. In the middle, it perfectly incorporates the full ripeness of fruit (white peach), meatiness, wininess and freshness, in a well-balanced whole which is seductive and sensually gentle. The long-lasting taste is emphasized by the acidity, which although present is completely enveloped by the density and sweetness of the wine. This is a blanc de blancs which is made to last, but which already has a well-established seductiveness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is pure, essential Champagne, limestone rock captured in liquid form. Its pale, fragrant citrus flavors are sleek and generous, etched into a stony structure that supports them completely without any overt acidity or tannin. All that's perceptible is the wine. Age this to let the flavor detail develop, or enjoy it now for the beauty of its youth.

    Bright yellow. Mineral-accented aromas of lemon, orange peel, jasmine and chamomile, with a touch of pear skin adding depth. Juicy citrus flavors show a silky quality, with spice and floral notes adding complexity. Gains flesh and sweetness with air and finishes with excellent clarity, cut and chalky persistence. This is balanced to age.

    The 2004 Brut Blanc de Blancs offers up gorgeous varietal fruit in a fairly rich style for a 2004 Blanc de Blancs. Textural finesse, brilliance and a total sense of harmony are the hallmarks of this suave, finessed Champagne. The small bubbles caress the palate from start to finish. L033331F100003. Disgorged March, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.

    A firm Champagne, displaying a floral quality to the biscuit, pear and light spice notes. This shows fine balance and good drive to the acidity, straight through to the delicate finish. Drink now through 2012.
