Serious opulence and finesse come from this wine. A perfect example of Grower Champagne with a complete finish. Fulsome color and big-boned, this is impressive, the 6 g/l of residual sugar finely knit into a texture of ripe, red-berried fruit and self-evident expertise. Ethereal poise, with just a hint of spice. Immediately vital on the palate. Very chewy and demanding, serious but exciting. Citrus fruit with complexity.
95- 97 Points by <Decanter>
Michael Edwards: Opulent and finessed.
Simon Field MW: Fulsome colour and temperamentally big-boned , this is an impressive example. The six grams of residual sugar finely knit into a texture of ripe, red-berried fruit. The finish has an ethereal poise, brought down to earth by just a hint of spice.
Tim Hall: Immediately vital in the mouth. Very chewy and demanding, a serious champagne but pretty exciting. Citrus character but with complex fruit and a pretty lingering finish. I like this!
Subject to final confirmation. Available mid of April 2018.
