A beautiful, sustained golden tint. A bouquet of dried flowers, then more powerful notes of candied fruit and dried apricots. Notes of almonds, hazelnuts and rich fruit on the palate. This is a warm wine, quite powerful but well balanced, which has matured well over the years.
Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel, there’s a distinct meatiness, or nuttiness, dominating the palate, plus candied apricot and peach flavors. The wine finishes medium-long with mushroom notes. Chalk and biscuit aromas are wide and deep. Still a vibrant wine; 55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, with consistent bead. Lovely, and at its peak.
The scent of freshly turned chalk soil forms the core of this wine, as if smelling fossils of oyster shells. It feels powerful and dynamic, fully mature but still holding a lively edge of youth that makes the superrich flavors a little wild. A satisfying older Champagne to enjoy with plump, wood-roasted oysters or braised veal.
A rich, sumptuous bubbly, subtle in flavor and seemlngly losing some steam. Yet remains bright, evoking coffee, candied citrus and hazelnut flavors, with a fine, crisp finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.
