Tasting Notes


The 2009 Extra-Brut Aÿ Vauzelle Terme, 100% Pinot Noir from a south-facing slope, is surprisingly ethereal in its first impression, before the natural power of the vintage makes itself felt. Mirabelle, crushed flowers, spice, mint and sweet dried cherry add pretty shades of nuance. The personality of Pinot from Aÿ comes through loud and clear. Disgorged May 2019 and bottled with no dosage. (Originally published in August 2020). 95 points

The 2009 Extra-Brut Corne Bautray is rich, ample and creamy, with all of the radiance of the vintage very much on display. Readers will find a potent Chardonnay with so much depth and power that it almost feels like a Pinot. Orchard fruit, dried flowers, chamomile and tropical inflections all grace this extroverted, flamboyant Champagne. The 2009 is not exactly subtle, but its dramatic beauty can't be denied. Disgorged April 2019 and bottled with no dosage. (Originally published in August 2020) 95 points

The 2009 Extra-Brut Avize Champ Gain captures an intriguing combination of the richness of the year and the clean, mineral inflections that are such signatures of Avize. All the elements are turned up a few notches. Petrol, apricot, dried flowers, orchard fruit, orange confit, honey and marzipan all develop in the glass. Even with all of its intensity, the 2009 retains striking translucence. It's a big wine, but there is plenty of complexity too. Disgorged May 2019. Dosage is 1.5 grams per liter. (Originally published in August 2020) 95 points
