Winemaker's Notes

Symphorine is a delicate and generous wine of marvelous purity and focus in the heart of the Cote de Blancs. There is a pencil-y minerality beneath the loveliest imaginable fruit. A truly exquisite wine that shouldn't be missed.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Brut Symphorine explodes on to the palate with waves of ripe varietal Chardonnay fruit, smoke and crushed rocks. This is an incredibly pure, deep, imposing wine with tons of power and breadth, yet it never comes across as heavy. The aromas and flavors build with authority to the striking finish. Power and precision…it’s all there in this gorgeous Champagne."
94 Points

" Green-tinged yellow. A high-pitched and complex nose evokes Meyer lemon, anise and white flowers, along with a strong mineral topnote. Silky, focused and impressively concentrated, with spicy citrus fruit and floral flavors braced by a bitter quinine quality. Shows chewy texture but carries no fat, finishing with excellent cut and persistence. (from the grand cru Oger; disgorged July 12, 2011)"

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
