Appearance: A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous bead of persistent fine bubbles. Aroma: There is an olfactory impact due to the richness of harmonious expressions (dry fruits, fresh citrus and white fruits) coupled with finely buttered seductive notes. A defined aromatic undertone which expresses the mature complexity linked to the vinification in oak barrels. Palate: The caressing and refreshing texture enhances the creamy sensation, dominated by a beautiful bracing vivacity. A burst of flavours (notes of grilled brioche, toffee) thanks to the distinguished power and maturity of the great wines of Champagne.

Fermented and aged briefly in wood, this is dry, intense and toasty while still giving space for white fruits and some citrus. Richly endowed, spicy, and tangy, its structure and tight texture mark it out as a Champagne for long-term aging. The aftertaste is brisk, packed with acidity and with reminiscences of the oak-aging in the vanilla finish. Drink this bottling from 2018.

Light, bright gold. Smoky pear and redcurrant scents are complicated by toasty lees, vanilla and fresh rose. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering toasty citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are given lift and spine by juicy acidity. The toasty note comes back on the mineral-tinged finish, which lingers with impressive tenacity.

Shows lovely integration, with no discernible break between the racy acidity and silky texture and the flavors of fresh apple and white cherry fruit, chalk, lemon zest and pickled ginger. Spice and graphite notes play on the finish. Drink now through 2020
