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.

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a copper beauty - need to open and warm up but then revealed brightness - citrus more than red fruit, slight brioche then limestone - the nose is big and round. The palette is expansive - just so full, some cherry and malo, then grapefruit, red fruit, with some flowers in the background, I can’t believe how balanced this is. Can almost smell the oak. The finish is long, starts with an acidic bite and mellows with the fruit slowly fading away. Wow. — 2 days ago
Valentines Day tipple on Thursday. Pale Gold with fine bead. Yeasty notes with aromas of Lemon, Apple skin and mineral. On the palate - Powerful, not sweet, acid, reflecting a low dosage of 3g/L. Finishing with a dry chalkiness. A good future assured. — 20 hours ago
Crisp apple nose and tart pear delicacy on the palate. Small, elegant bubbles and dry. Paired well with salmon; would pair well with light apps/charcuterie. Thinking this would be a great hot-summer-day champagne as it is bright and not sweet, rather than a good toasty champs for winter. — 12 hours ago
It's sunny and just over 30°F today, so fire in the chimnea time! First flames of 2019.
Nose has warmed pear spread on lightly toasted brioche, lemon curd lite and wet limestone.
Palate has great mineral core surrounded by ripe pear, under-ripe yellow apple and touch of pineapple core.
Great bottle to start our afternoon. — 6 days ago
Лимон, неспелый жёлтый грейпфрут, яблоко, белый хлеб, фисташки, базилик, легкая горечь в послевкусии. Сухо, с чуть нервной кислотностью. Тонко и дрожаще, с голой костью, интенсивно, без большой глубины, довольно просто, но не глупо. — 2 days ago
