So bready and yeasty. Wafting aromas… phenomenal nose. Green apple. Nutty, a hint of honey and sweetness to balance blazing acid. Exquisite.

NV. Lots of chalk, lemon, tart cherry, crab apple, Golden apple compote. Bit of a shortbread and red flower-y nose. Good length, clean, mineral-forward. Very zesty.

My favorite champagne yet, in all the years drinking it. This is the benchmark for grower champagne. 100% Pinot Munier.

Alpine strawberry scone, warm and yeast nose,
Tangy deliciousness , pillows of creamy blueberry, sour cherry compote, and Buddha palm acidity. Wow, I am in Love...
Happy NYE !

Great clarity of fruit, lip smacking acid, plenty of chalky mineral undertones. LBT was richly fruited and juicy in its fruit profile. This disgorgement showed a much more serious side of things, more postured and etched out. Still has all the life that PM brings but all dressed up for the party this time. I love this wine/producer and have never been disappointed. 100PM, 10/2016 disgorgement

Bracing acidity and bright fruit. Lees are apparent. Beautiful.

A lively fresh grower champagne. A briney aroma with notes of brioche. Delicate flavors of salted caramel custard and baked apples.

Without a doubt, my favorite champagne producer. While the Crayeres and VP are my favorites, this was my first time enjoying the all Pinot meunier offering. This was opened alongside Billecart’s Rendezvous No1 and Prevosts’ La Closerie LC 17 (all three being Pinot meunier).

Disgorged mid 2019 after three years on the lees. This screamed Pinot meunier out of those three. The La Closerie (my favorite meunier champagne) has so much cardamom, and espresso coffee tones to it, and the Billecart seemed like a nice, bright champagne yet wasn’t overly expressive. The Egly had so much gummy fruit (like gummy fruit snacks), which I always get with meunier. Extremely expressive. Bright stone fruits on the nose along with spiced pear. Definitely a floral component...tangerine like. The palate is mostly racy at the core but surrounded by rich texture. An excellent representation of Pinot meunier.
