    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2002 vintage has a pale gold color with silver accents. It has a brilliant aspect and an effervescence that is lively and long-lasting. The nose is very open, pure and complex. The Chardonnay gives this wine a refined mineral flavor accompanied with pleasant flowery notes of acacia. Aerating the wine reveals hints of yellow-fleshed fruit and pastries(brioche, marzipan). These give way to delicately spicy aromas, followed by elegant notes of licorice and high-bred teas. In the mouth, the wine is silky and generous. The expectations promised by the nose are met and even exceeded as the complexity of this wine is superlative:simultaneously evoking fruity and floral, mineral and spicy notes, menthol and toast. This wine is quite simply dazzling with its wealth of aromas, and a deliciously long and powerful finish.

    Pair this with with bass tartare, poached turbot served on a bed of fresh pasta, or cappuccino of Bresse chicken with candied citrus fruits.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This combines the richness of the Clicquot style with flavor precision and the length of the '02 vintage. It's delicious juice, accelerated by the bubbles into a blast of flavor that lasts. There's flinty minerality as well as lime and ginger root, youthful and invigorating for now and suited to years in the cellar.

    This firm, racy Champagne offers fresh spring blossom, almond paste and apple pastry notes, with good intensity on a refined frame. The finish of lemon zest and spice lingers. Best from 2012 through 2017
