This wine gets better every year, still a majority- Meunier cuvée but the proportion is falling. Dosage a sensible 8g, which contributes to the lovely aromas; it's more silky and stylish now - even starched. It still has to recover from disgorgement, but it's lighter on its feet than ever, less the soy and shiitake of before and now more hay and chicken-stock.

Wine SpectatorFloral notes mix with flavors of ripe apple, peach, grapefruit zest and biscuit in this lightly chalky, firmly structured Champagne. A hint of smoke shows on the open-knit finish. Disgorged July 2011. Best after 2013. 168 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastThis full-bodied wine is packed with citrus and tight, apple-driven acidity, as well as a rich touch of apricot. This fruitiness is balanced by a deliciously refreshing character that creates texture and a steely, minerally feel.
