A bright golden colour. Wonderful Champagne with reverberant character with aroma reminiscent of balmy spices, vanilla, Brioche, nuts and dried yellow stone fruits. Hints of candied lemon zest in the background. On the palate well balanced with intense flavour reminiscent of mild spices, Brioche and yellow stone fruit, hints of honey and roasted almonds in the background. Truly a Grand Cru quality with aromatic depth and length "blending" freshness and maturity.

Bright gold. Very fine bead. Particularly arresting bready nose. The Chardonnay tension is evident only on the very end of a delicate, creamy palate. Hint of putty. Really very good indeed.
