Lilyale Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 1650

Lovely champagne, fruity and brioche tones. Has multiple layers in the mouth, yeasty, ripe mangoes. Dry on the palate. No surprise considering it has 0 dosage. — 13 days ago

Better than Corne?

I think they are very different . Corne more flowery more accessible, this one a bit more fruit, a bit more austere. I would score them the same.

Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

A blend of all three permissible varietals. Pours a bright golden color. On the nose, lemon curd, marcona almonds, brioche with whispers of coriander, cardamom and fennel. On the palate, Juicy Fruit™️!! We have that pineapple, lemon, orange, and banana but with instead of something confected, we get racy acid which is just fantastic! Texture is rich and creamy. Really lovely stuff if you’re a fan of this, slightly more decadent style of Champagne. No disgorgement data available. — 8 days ago

Cuvée Maxime Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2012

A light golden shade with a profusion of tiny bubbles. Green apples, pears, and grapefruit up front on the fun, fruity, and fresh nose. The citrus aromas take over with a little orange rind and peach. Tea biscuits and just the barest hint of red cherries make an appearance. This is honestly one of those champagnes you never want to stop smelling.

All Grand Cru Chardonnay from Le Mesnil sur Oger in the Côte des Blancs. Six years on lees with 8 g/l dosage. This is really nice with a sturdy, acidic backbone and just the right amount of floral attributes. Classy is the word I would use to describe this beauty. It most certainly over delivers for the price. And I have to mention the bottle, it’s spectacular.

The palate displays roasted nuts and more toast. Beautifully pure fruit here with lemon rinds, grapefruit, and tangerine. A splash of strawberry and cherry goes a long way here. The stone minerality takes the cake. Medium long finish with spice and more yeast. This is magnificent now but can wait a few more years.
