Consistently delicious and great value in Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc Champagne.
Fresh, reductive, lively on the palate. Green apple, lemon, lime zest, baguette crust, pineapple, white peach, lanolin, cream, perfect chalk & minerality, yellow & white florals, beautiful acidity and rich polished finish that persists.

Magnum of vintage Champagne, crisp and light, at birthday dinner in Wellesley, MA (Federal Wine) — 2 days ago
Decanted about three hours prior to dinner which was basically grilled steak three ways. This was an absolute joy already, if not still a glimpse into greater things yet to come. The 2015 Les Grands Mûriers is special. To start, the bouquet is beguiling. A positively feral example of Syrah with smoked bacon fat, tart dark brambles, deli case, Herbs de Provenance and new leather. On the palate, there was a ferrous minerality that accompanied the abundant dark fruits and spices meats. So compact and full of energy! I already love this wine and look forward to seeing what this does with some age. Already great with an extended decant; will age gracefully for twenty years, I’m sure of it. — a month ago
