The largest Champagne house in France, founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. A blend of 40% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir & 23% Pinot Meunier. Golden straw with stone fruit aromas with citrus notes. On the palate fresh fruit tastes of apple and peach with lemony tones. Great balance, good bubble bead flow, generous acidity, lingering ending with crisp mineral tones. A Fav! — 4 days ago
Showing much less maturity than the Cuvée Elizabeth. A very apple cider and pear nose joined by hints of biscuit. An abundance of structure with the acidity acting like the big man on campus. Salivating inducing honey coated minerals that somehow does not stifle the concentrated fruit which pops up on a very extended finish. — 12 days ago
This was a wild ride. Unusual aromatics of flintstone or scooby doo kids vitamins. Tastes like that too. The second day was better with those flavors fading, but still not my style (better with food) 33.3% equal parts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier. Based on 2008 & 2009 vintages. Disgorged 2017. Dosage 4.5 g/L. SS — 9 days ago
Reception pour at the Jean-Michel Cazes dinner.
On the nose; sweet & sour cherries, strawberries, under ripened tangerines, black cherries, brioche, nice volcanic minerals and red & pink roses.
The body is rich. Sweet & sour cherries, strawberries, under ripened tangerines, black cherries, ripe rhubarb notes, more brioche than the nose, seashells & oysters, nice volcanic minerals and red & pink roses. — 9 days ago
One of my favourite hidden gem BdB champagnes that I loved in 90 & 96 so excited to try the 02 @ £140 that was a generous gift 😍 Tied with string to hold the cork 👍
