Brioche, almond, vanilla, lemon curd, ginger. Rich and toasty on the palate but with an undercurrent of lemon and minerals. Great balance.

One of my favorite cuvée’s from Bouchard. First time trying 2015. Shows serious power and intensity. Rich orchard fruit, gun smoke, baking spice, damp earth and perfumed citrus oils explode from the glass and on the palate. Gains volume and focus in the decanter and there’s just enough acid in this vintage adding freshness and holding it all together rather than being overly prevalent in its youth. Such a singular, vinous Champagne and the perfect example of Bouchard’s style. Love these wines. — 17 days ago
Nose is ripe and rich. Florals and chestnuts. Tar. Roses. Elegant and apparent at the same time. Vibrant mid to late season cherry. Really lovely chestnut. Super classic nose here. Juicy, clean and pure. Elegant. Sweet and soft. Lovey freshness and ripe 2017 but very sweet tannins. Beautiful purity and finesse but needs an hour or 24 as the 17 tannins are coming in strong. I’ll be back as this opens. — 3 days ago
Purchased @ winery - stunner! Pristine & peaking, showing some age w/rich dark ruby w/slight bricking, not entirely opaque - soaring gorgeous red fruit like cherry, rhubarb, strawberry & violets & roses, dusty, tar, unmistakable Piedmont Earth, mineral, liqueur like, so clearly delineated & pure. Impeccable balance, seamless - a treasure. — a day ago
V16. My wife popped this for my father-in-law'a birthday a couple of days ago. When she told me, I got really nervous this was my last btl, but I'm happy to he wrong...nearing three years since my last btl. On the nose: almost overwhelming complexity: soft pastry cream, sweet apple, meyer lemon, soft hazelnut, candied lychee, a hint of hi-toned coffee. Lovely soft mousse...just so much going on I can't do it justice....after 3 days open!?!?!? Wow. — 10 days ago
