Nose has toasted brioche, grilled lemon, warm lemon creme, lemon zest, oxidized pear slice and fresh, rising bread dough.

Palate has lemon poundcake, cold toast, limestone chips, dried lemon slice and (light) candied orange.

Great mid-palate, a restrained richness is all elegance, acid balance is perfect and not pulling you one way or another. At 15 years past vintage, a great example of finesse in Champagne.

An aptly titled, solid bottle to begin our Valentine's Day 2020 afternoon.

Nice nose of minerals, lemon zest, very airy and clean. Elegant. Bright and high toned. Superb sense of place. Very earthy. Hint of mushroom. Very nice. Elegant, juicy, lemony and delicious. Lovely finesse and elegance. A compact wine but really had a terrific deliciousness factor. Long. Good concentration and depth. Some real power here. Terrific mid palate. Very good.
