About the wine

Tasting notes

The scent of freshly cut Golden Delicious and raw shortcrust pastry creates a generous nose that almost has overtones of Mirabelle plum. The palate has a creamy, dense mousse that underlines both the generosity of the fruit and the streamlined, precise and well-proportioned body of the wine. Edges of saltiness make the mouth water and tell of depth while smoothness creates a sense of seamless elegance. There is umami allure in the long finish.

Expert review

Tight-knit and dense on the nose. Really very exciting and tense but with great richness underneath which presumably comes from the ageing rather than the dosage. A hint of almond paste/marzipan. Great to enjoy a champagne that's very refreshing but not austere. The whole tenor seems to be nutty rather than fruity or mineral. Long, reverberant finish.
