PRODUCT REVIEWS

Upon pouring you immediately notice the wine's colour, it has a lovely, delicate golden hue in the glass, hinting at some weight and complexity. This is no doubt in part due to the high proportion of reserve wines in the blend, many with over a decade of bottle age. Indeed they age their Brut Réserve for 5 years in bottle on the lees prior to disgorgement, that's 3 times longer that the legal requirement for a non-vintage champagne, and a true show of the house's commitment to quality.

The nose offers dried orchard fruit, a rich toasty, character, a hint of almond and delicate smoky edge, it reminds me a lot of the Bollinger style, of which I am a huge fan, but a little more delicate, and I like it.

The palate offers all of the texture and complexity that the nose had hinted at; delicate orchard fruit, toasty notes, a nutty brioche character with an elegant, rich texture and a lengthy, dry finish, fine champagne indeed.

It is an absolutely delicious glass of wine right off the bat, but I'm confident that it has the structure, balance and all round quality to continue its evolution in the bottle over the next 3+ years.
