Possessing a brilliant yellow golden color, the bubbles are lively, intense, and light. The bouquet is fruity with initial notes of peaches, pears, and green apples followed by flavors of candied lemon and ripe apricots. On the palate this cuvée reveals a delicate freshness followed by the power and full-bodied character of pinot noir. A long aging provides additional flavors of vanilla, roasted nuts and a hint of toast. A result of the carefully chosen infusion of terroir and reserve wines, the finish is long. Imparting to the finish is lightness from Chardonnay, fruitiness from Pinot Noir and roundness provided by Pinot Meunier.
"Toast and dried fruit notes mix in this very harmonious dry Champagne, which is full of flavor—dried apricot, candied orange peel, nut and smoke—but still elegant and light-weight. The rich, toasty note lingers on the vibrant finish. Drink now through 2020. 12,000 cases imported."
