The coveted 2018 disgorgement! 48 month sur lattes Les Pierrieres is a total stunner. Raring to go right out of the bottle, it’s simply just a complete Champagne. It displays a stunning crystalline purity and a seamless combination of richness and elegance. It’s layered with white flowers, fresh brioche, lemon candy and signature chalky minerals with fantastic persistence, cut and texture. A little age goes such a long way with these wines. Terrific. — 6 hours ago
It's clear that it holds up super well! The bouquet combines fruity notes of pear, hint of orange blossom, brioche notes and almonds in complete coherence. It's digestible and long in the mouth. It can be drunk well in all circumstances without leaving a headache.
Force est de constater que ça tient super bien la route! Le bouquet associe notes fruitées de poire, pointe de fleur d’oranger, notes briochées et amandes en toute cohérence. C’est digeste et long en bouche. Ça se boit bien en toute circonstance sans laisser de mal de tête. — 9 days ago
For the fruit lovers, the yeasty boys, the acid freaks.
An even split of apple cores, mealy pear, luscious cherries, crusty sourdough, lemon and spice. Personality and complexity and layers to dissect - in the aromas, elegantly expressive. In the palette, powerful, concentrated, long.
Something for everyone. — a day ago
A new (to me) maison located in Vertus. The wine pours light straw in color with a persistent mousse. On the nose, bright lemons and white peach. On the palate, the fruit is confirmed and accompanied by chalky minerals. Long and very refreshing. 2008 vintage is certainly on display here. Zippy. I dig it! But I’m a sucker for 2008. — 8 days ago
Although I find that La Closerie generally needs some bottle age to fill out and come into its own, LC19 is in a great spot after sufficient air flaunting powerful, rounded and rich stone fruit with smoky minerals, toasted hazelnuts and a vibrant and chiseled palate with a touch of salinity on its persistent finish. Pinot Meunier from the master, it just can’t be matched. — 2 days ago
