I absolutely love and respect this producer. This is what Champagne should taste like. So pure and balanced from all aspects. Needs time to develop but already showing well because of the ripeness of 03.

The big daddy to finish off this tasting. Oh how wonderful. "Let it interact with the oxygen, it's been trapped in the bottle for so long!"

Didn't get to spend time with this wine the way I wanted to. It showed well, though, and if you have some laid down, I don't think there's any rush.
