At the 30 min decant mark starts to open up that floral cab franc nose. Really lovely cab franc/sauv blend. Super smooth, silky mouthfeel. Holding together perfectly. Dark fruit, bit of charcoal, camphor, lavender. Fruit coming out more with time in the glass. Great wine! — 2 months ago

(Disgorged 1/19)- Always my favorite of the Lieux-Dits and without question one of the very best Blanc de Blancs Champagnes on the planet, it’s stunning tonight, rich, powerful and intense with crazy depth to its layers, unfurling in a Burgundy glass to reveal its complex core of rich orchard fruit, roasted nuts, gun smoke, old rum barrels and candied white flowers, all with seamless integration and balance. The palate is generous and detailed, with racy acids, waves of saline laced chalky Le Mesnil minerals and a finish that just keeps going. For me, the BdB benchmark. — a month ago
