Winemaker's Notes

With all fruit coming from the 2008 vintage, this Champagne, an original Pinot Noir, truly expresses the Bouzy terroir. The bouquet harmoniously expresses the complexity of aromas of fresh grapes and stone fruit. On the palate, the wine is racy, displaying the elegance and personality of the Pinot Noir. Long in the mouth, it gives off flavors of citrus and white flesh fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Light, bright gold. Musky, spice-accented aromas of dried pear, redcurrant and rhubarb, with toasty lees and citrus pith nuance emerging with air. Gently chewy in texture, offering sappy pear and bitter orange flavors that are given a creamy quality by a note of sweet butter. The redcurrant comes back on the long, stony, subtly smoky finish. This Champagne has the body to work with richer foods but comes off dry enough to serve by itself."
91 Points

"Lightly creamy and fresh, this is backed by tangy acidity, with flavors of strawberry, plum, licorice, blanched almond and subtle pastry set on a refined texture. Delivers a clean, citrusy finish. Disgorged January 25, 2012. Drink now through 2016."

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
