A brilliant light yellow color, with a fine jewel-like bead. On the nose, fruity notes of white peach, lemon, pineapple, green banana and pear. Floral, botanical scents of mock-orange, herbal tea and honeysuckle, with spicier sweeter nuances of pepper, brown sugar, marzipan and candied melon. The palate is straightforward, yet complex, with a sleek, pure, rich finish. It has a light, lively, supple structure with mineral overtones. Bracing, refreshing notes of rhubarb and grapefruit, with a touch of mint.
Pair with fish, seafood and caviar, duck and white meat such as poultry, fresh green flavors like coriander or lemongrass, sweet-tart flavors like citrus fruit, bracing flavors like green tomato or lemon, almonds, hazel nuts, figs, risotto and pasta.
The house's 70th vintage champagne is a doozy. The nose shows peach, pear and honeysuckle; lush and smooth with ripe juicy fruit and notes of nuts and minerals; bracing, full and long.
Minerally overtones accent flavors of candied black cherry, black currant and gumdrop that remain fresh, with a lively bead and well-cut acidity carrying accents of lemon zest, biscuit and fresh herb. Elegant yet expressive.
