Tasting Notes

A beautifully bright and expressive Champagne, with precision and vivid acidity throughout; roasted coffee bean and graphite notes lead to a rich palate of toasted brioche, crystallized honey, bergamot and crème de cassis. Exotic ground spice details of cardamom, ginger and anise show on the finish. Tasted from magnum. Drink now through 2030.

Mouthwatering, with rich notes of smoky mineral, truffle and toasted hazelnut underscoring lovely layers of black currant, crystallized honey, espresso, dried pineapple, ground ginger and cumin. The long, lasting finish is all about the creamy bead, which sits like finely woven silk on the palate. Tasted from magnum. Drink now through 2033. 100 cases imported.
