A striking rose gold color in the glass; I don't recall this catching my attention so much on all prior bottles!
Nose has oxidized pear, orange zest and fresh brioche.
Palate has tart tangerine, lemon pith, white grapefruit and under-ripe raspberry. Great acidity but balanced creamy notes.
Disgorged January 2021; Dosage 7 G/L; 2018 base vintage.
Always a must-buy wine, fantastic value. — 13 days ago
Loooved this to end 63 Clinton meal. Interesting cause this was primarily chardonnay grape but was a dessert wine. Really toasty / leesy but acidic which went so well with the baked Alaska with orange inside — 6 hours ago
Pour célébrer l’arrivée de 2022. Un des bons Champagnes bu cette année, riche, plein, crémeux, vineux sans excès, frais, bulles assez fines, superbe texture en bouche, une belle acidité qui lui donne une certine droiture et un bel équilibre avec une superbe longueur. 93-94
To celebrate the new year, one of the better Champagnes I drank this year. Rich, full, creamy, with vinosity yet nice acidity and freshness, gret texture, balanced and superb length, gorgeous. — 19 days ago
An extra brut. Bright rose gold with fine bubbles and white mousse. High percentage of the Pinots results in a voluptuous nose of Royal Anne cherry and toasted white bread. Medium bodied palate echoes the palate with flinty baking apple mid palate. High acidity, of course. Slightly lingering finish. Approachable extra bruts (and brut natures) are the one upside to climate change. Tsarine’s black grape-heavy cuvée puts Orium right up there in the pack. A perfect match for Sushi, oysters, or that classic Champagne brunch dish, scrambled eggs with caviar. Drink it when you buy it. — 15 days ago
Tight, almost imperceptible mousse until this hits the tongue and the bubbles fill your mouth. Really long acids, though the fruit feels a bit primary at this point. With more time will probably be drinking really nicely. Very vinous.
Night two and this is really beautiful! — 15 days ago
