This is seriously lovely Champagne; wonderfully ripe, musky aromas, less unknit than earlier versions, which sometimes implied a crevasse between the mature part and the steely part. It's like liquefied French-toast and butter; shows the sorrel-y dryness with the pointed chalky flower, with a brown-butter smile off the Meunier.

Spice and floral notes enliven this fresh, well-cut sparkler, showing hints of green pear and white peach, with a touch of honey. Firm and tangy, with a moderate finish. Drink now.

The NV Brut Premier Cru Cuvee de Reserve shows a touch more richness and weight than the Tradition. Warm, slightly oxidative notes add complexity and depth to the fruit, while the finish reflects those qualities in its harmonious, creamy personality. The Cuvee de Reserve is 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Meunier and 33% Pinot Noir, mostly 2004 vintage, with some 2005. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and dosage was 8 grams per liter. Disgorged: October 20, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.

Light yellow. Ripe pear and yellow apple on the nose, with gentle mineral and floral qualities lending vibrancy. Fleshy but dry, with sharply focused orchard and pit fruit flavors and slow-building dusty minerals adding grip to the finish. This boasts sneaky power and excellent persistence.
