Absolutely delicious. Spot on example of why I love Chardonnay dominant fizz. Lean and lemony initially but expands beautifully on the palate showing depth, complexity and length. Boom!

July 2011 disgorgement, showing quite a lot of development, perhaps prematurely. However it's delicious right now.

Beautiful, and a beautiful way to celebrate the last bit of fruit brought in off the vineyard for the 2014 vintage.

Pale gold in the glass. Dried apples, brioche, nuts on the nose. Echoed on the palate.acidity and find bubbles very well balance the sugar. Very tasty.

Buttery pie crust, red apples, limes galore. Chalk shows through on the mid-palate, ends with a burst of spices. Fantastic Champagne!
