Winemaker's Notes

Light yellow and luminous with with hints of green typical to the Chardonnay. The nose is subtle which opens, with a little air, to floral notes (lime-tree) and dry fruits. It is followed by notes of citrus and almonds, and finishes with minerals, which brings complexity and elegance. The well balanced mouthfeel is fresh and the attack is strong and stylish. The grapefruit and tangerine notes are mixed with those of toasted bread. The finish, which is very long, with more candied citrus and mineral flavors, brings to this wine a perfect equilibrium between finesse and strength.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Brut Millesime Cuvee L'Esprit de 2006 is a blend of fruit from parcels in Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Cramant, all four Grand Cru villages. It is a sensational wine laced with green pears, apples, lemon, white flowers and spices. The balance of ripeness and tautness is remarkable in this powerful, intense wine. I tasted the 2006 for the first time during a visit to the winery about a year and a half ago, and immediately purchased a case of magnums. The wine is every bit as remarkable today. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026."

"Bright gold. Vibrant orange, pear and quince on the nose, with subtle ginger and white pepper notes adding complexity. Dry and light on its feet, offering spicy orchard fruit and bitter citrus pith flavors and noteworthy cut on the back end. Strikingly elegant blanc de blancs with intense minerality driving the clinging finish."
93 Points

"Streamlined, with a light, leesy edge to hints of lemon curd, dried apricot, fresh-cut flower and mineral. Lovely texture here, and a firm, tightly wound finish. Disgorged January 2011. Drink now through 2020."

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
