About

93

"Light,bright gold. Heady, complex scents of poached pear, vanilla, anise and pungent flowers. Fleshy but focused and pure, offering vanilla-accented orchard fruit and lemon curd underscored by chalky minerality. Finishes long and toasty, with lingering florality and noteworthy clarity." (12/12)

1 Peter Liem - Champagne Guide

"A year after its disgorgement in January of 2011, this feels plush and velvety in texture, showing a golden, opulent depth of fruit while being focused by vibrant acidity. The base vintage of 2008 represents 50 percent of the blend, with the remainder made up of equal parts 2007 and 2006, and as usual, it's composed of 70 percent chardonnay and 30 percent pinot noir. It's full in fragrance and subtly nuanced on the palate, turning citrusy and zesty on the finish, and it promises to become even more compelling with further aging." *(*) Stars - (Reviewed 2/12)
