    Winemaker's Notes:

    Light yellow and luminous with with hints of green typical to the Chardonnay. The nose is subtle which opens, with a little air, to floral notes (lime-tree) and dry fruits. It is followed by notes of citrus and almonds, and finishes with minerals, which brings complexity and elegance. The well balanced mouthfeel is fresh and the attack is strong and stylish. The grapefruit and tangerine notes are mixed with those of toasted bread. The finish, which is very long, with more candied citrus and mineral flavors, brings to this wine a perfect equilibrium between finesse and strength.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Brut Millesime Cuvee L'Esprit de 2006 is a blend of fruit from parcels in Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Cramant, all four Grand Cru villages. It is a sensational wine laced with green pears, apples, lemon, white flowers and spices. The balance of ripeness and tautness is remarkable in this powerful, intense wine. I tasted the 2006 for the first time during a visit to the winery about a year and a half ago, and immediately purchased a case of magnums. The wine is every bit as remarkable today. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.

    Bright gold. Vibrant orange, pear and quince on the nose, with subtle ginger and white pepper notes adding complexity. Dry and light on its feet, offering spicy orchard fruit and bitter citrus pith flavors and noteworthy cut on the back end. Strikingly elegant blanc de blancs with intense minerality driving the clinging finish.

    International Wine Cellar

    Streamlined, with a light, leesy edge to hints of lemon curd, dried apricot, fresh-cut flower and mineral. Lovely texture here, and a firm, tightly wound finish. Disgorged January 2011. Drink now through 2020.
