A delicate copper color with a more than adequate amount of minuscule bubbles. It’s very lively with the creaminess coming later. The nose is subdued at first showing red cherries and yeast but after around half an hour you’ll start to get fresh roses and tangerine. Composed of Grand Cru grapes from Verzenay, the blend is 65/35 PN/CH with 15% of the Pinot coming from still wine.
The longer you spend with this sexy minx of a champagne, the more you’ll fall in love. Still displaying those strong Pinot characteristics hours later, it has settled into a state of approachable elegance. That’s what using up to 60% reserve wines will do for you. A multitude of red berries and tasty pastries absolutely sing. Exquisite minerality runs throughout. A long finish with more citrus and acid. Comparing this to other, larger Champagne houses does a disservice because this easily blows them away. — a month ago

Love these Chablis area Pinot Noirs!
N - Plush Smokey/cherry pie, damp earth, wet rose along with dried cranberry and ink. Fresh, and very attractive.
p - light weight, sapped and lined with spiced ginger notes while finishing on tart dried cranberry and crushed chalk.
This is quite a sinewy wine without a spare ounce of fat. Fresh, distinctive and savoury in character. Lean in style, I love it foe its freshness but this is not for those that prefer fleshier reds. — 2 days ago
Loved this Irancy Pinot with Christmas tenderloin and root veg gratin. Elegant, balanced. None of the funk other reviewers found. — 2 months ago

Still youthful. Dark fruit and earth. Hint of herbaceousness that blows off. — 2 months ago
