Some awesome things going on with this champagne:
Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs
It's a soft, simple, velvety champagne. Light on its feet with very creamy soapy bubbles, and well applied acidity to clear it away - baked apple, apricot, cinnamon, brioche, flint, white flowers, honeycomb - about 9g dosage, so not on the dry side of Brut, but not near Extra Dry.
Just beautiful juice for the price - it's not toasty and intense, it is a soft and pretty style, but a great example of Chard from Avize - Oger.

Seriously- I could drink this wine every single day. It has perfect acidity, balanced juicy raspberry fruitiness, complex aromas such as flint and toasted clove, mushroom, and just the right amount of alcohol for an old world lover. Clean and to the point. — 2 days ago
Holy moly this pinot is delicious. Delicate, with some raspberry, fresh light herbs, anise, and clove tones with elevated, yet juicy acidity... the thing that makes this pinot so good is that it is simple, with excellent balance, and yet still has some complex layers. Aromas are enticing, and the finish is almost bone dry. Fairly young of course - could use a few more years to really be in its prime, however even now it is just flippin' fantastic. One of the best under $50 pinot noir I've had in a while. — 5 days ago
