Winemaker's Notes

With all fruit coming from the 2008 vintage, this champagne, an original Chardonnay, is a beautiful expression of the Bouzy terroir, a region primarily known for its Pinor Noirs. The bouquet delicately expresses aromas of citrus and dried fruit. The palate is intense, creamy and voluptuous. Citrus notes and exotic fruit blend in with floral notes and juicy fruit. Precise and neat, this champagne develops further in the mouth displaying the subtle balance between fruit and minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and floral, this is supple and well-knit, offering an appealing mix of apricot, toasted almond, biscuit and subtle chalk. Lightly creamy, with a citrusy finish. Disgorged January 2012. Drink now through 2018."
91 Points

"Light yellow. Aromas of poached pear, tangerine, white flowers and toasty lees, with a bright mineral nuance adding lift. Nervy and precise on the palate, offering intense orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors and an undercurrent of smoky minerality. Closes sappy and long, with lingering floral and pear notes and very good clarity. This Champagne received a low dosage of three grams per liter."

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
