An invigorating wine that balances liveliness with refinement. It comes from a grape harvest marked by an exceptionally warm spring, followed by a cool summer that was accompanied by abundant rainfall. Due to the mild winter and hot spring, the grapes ripened prematurely, and the early harvest - at the end of August - led to a balanced and structured wine with astonishing freshness.

Wine EnthusiastAlways a light, ethereal style of wine, this is also very fresh and still young. It will age with its taut minerality from the Chardonnay in the blend. A softer background will become toasty over the next few years. The vintage date on this bottle is 200 years after the foundation of this producer. Drink from 2021.

Wine SpectatorRich notes of brioche, vanilla and cream lead the way in this round, open-knit Champagne, with an accessible mix of poached apple and candied ginger flavors, backed by lively acidity. Subtle finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 6,000 cases imported.
