Definitely my new favorite champagne. I’ve had two different times now and both times have turned my head and made me think about it for days after. So much complexity and purity here - toasty creamy mousse, meyer lemon sorbet, overripe apricot and marmalade, hint of clove and banana bread, honeysuckle and honey too. The aromatics are haunting. Beautiful texture. It’s got it all.

Small champagne tasting at Edinburgh airport. Blanc de Blanc versus regular NV. The BdB was far better in every respect; finer, more rounded, though a little short. Full of crisp cold-pressed apple juice and fine prickly bubbles. A very food-friendly low-dosage wine that cut through the Cullen Skink perfectly!

Superb #Champagne. Refreshing and pleasing.

Very focused with an amazing golden color. Flowers and citrus come off the wine with a little honey. Breaded.

Dry fruit of apricot on the palate with minerals running parallel. Fine bubbles and soft honey, cream.

Opened 2/17/16
