Winemaker's Notes

#88 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

Bright, golden colors. The bubbles are tiny and bright, the result of long ageing. Intense aromas on the nose. Fresh and slightly toasted aromas. We are in the hear of the Bouzy terroir with notes of citrus and yellow fruit. Sharp, elegant and balanced. After early notes of apple and pear come notes of pastry, brioche, toasted bread and grilled almonds.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows lovely balance, with a satiny quality to the refined mousse and mouthwatering acidity meshing with pure notes of poached quince, lemon mousse, white cherry and fresh ginger. Offers a lightly chalky finish. Disgorged January 2012."
92 Points

"Light, bright gold. Toasted bread, pear nectar and honey on the nose and palate, with a subtle touch of rhubarb adding an earthy quality. Spicy, nicely concentrated orchard fruit flavors pick up a bitter citrus pith nuance with air and show very good intensity. Closes on a smoky, leesy note, with firm grip and lingering toastiness."
90 Points

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
