Clear medium gold that’s strikingly attractive. The nose is so pretty and deep with lemon and herbal aromas immediately. There are some almond notes after a bit of time along with delicate flowers. The chalk here is incredible and long. Peaches and pears, with apples and moist limestone.
The word that instantly comes to mind with this champagne is purity. It’s so pure, so alive, so vibrant. And such a good pure representation of the terroir. From Oiry in the Côte des Blancs and based from 2016 vintage. This is an intense wine and probably not for everyone, but it’s so charming and precise. Beautifully racy acidity and exquisite structure. Fresh as hell and sharp, in that good way.
That Grand Cru fruit struts its stuff in the mouth. The chalk just screams at you until you fall head over heels in love. The citrus begins to shine along with more almonds and toasted bread. Long finish with a small bite of spice. Superbly spectacular. A real gem of a champagne. — 8 days ago
Pure pleasure - rapacious opening revealing a creamy core buttressed with ample mousse, acidity. Bread, lemon curd, and just enough RS. Perhaps the best NV BdB we’ve had in recent memory. Love the recherché label, floral pattern straight from your auntie’s tea cozy—please never change. (Extra point for QPR) — a month ago
While it comes from near the Côte des blancs, this cuvée is blanc de noirs (Pinot noir with about 5% meunier). It is exactly what you want from grower Champagne- assertive with both quality and a point of view. There is red fruit body to this wine and considerable ripeness do you not only get lemon, apple, brioche and pear, you get hints of raspberry and strawberry and a soft minerality that is irresistible. — 23 days ago
What a delicious bottle. Super expressive light yellow fruits- pear, kiwi, pawpaw, banana, also with a beguiling spiciness, almost a curry spice, and slight nuttiness reminiscent of clean sous voile wine. Psycho accessibility, perfectly integrated dosage. Long mineral finish. — a month ago
