The vineyards for this wine are located on the Grand Cru classified vineyards of Avize, Cramant and Oger. An ideal south-eastern exposure combined with grape maturity and a chalky soil lends these wines their characteristic refinement and vivacity. The estate is currently moving towards fully organic farming methods, which, combined with the mostly 35 year old vines, works towards extracting the individual character from the terroir.
There's a silky mellowness, meddled with definite power in this Champagne, as well as aromas of ripe pear and brioche. "Lovely aromas of toasted coconut, vanilla and whole-grain bread mark this intense, delineated Champagne. Despite its vibrant structure, there's a creaminess, and it picks up honey, apple and grilled hazelnut notes. Terrific complexity and personality. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes." Wine Spectator: 93 points
