Dégorgement 9/18. Dominated by creamy, pure Cramant, with a lime leaf/galangal edge from other crus. Only 4g/L dosage, so it’s quite bracing. Always a favorite from the Côte des Blancs.

Green apple, lemon, white peach, vanilla, brioche.
Light, elegant.

A burst of yellow fruit, chalk, and fragrant orchard blossoms. Lots of breadth on the palate, almost square, adding a degree of textural complexity I enjoyed.

Creamy but still very fresh; great biscuity, minerally depth. I love this.

Disgorged 2013, beautiful development, great intensity, a great nightcap to finish of a great evening.

Bubbles were abrasive and not nearly as refined, precise as I recall.
