37% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay.
Base of 80% 2016 and 20% 2015, aged in new to 12yo barrels for eleven months, and was then given two and a half years 'sur lattes' before disgorging. The malolactic fermentation was completed.

A lovely wine from a rather unheralded village (Villers-Aux-Nœuds), despite its 1er Cru status.

Manages to have both a wonderful richness while maintaining a baseline of briny freshness.

Années: 20% '11, 80% '12, Dosage: 4g/l, Decanted/Burgundy glass, took about 1.5hrs to shine, was tried beside the Savart, both such outstanding examples of true/pure RM's, there was the beautiful yogurt intensity that shone through with some air, much like the Savart, such great terroirs.

Incredible Champagne, surely one of the best bottles of wine I’ve ever had. This was a wine of duality—high acid and bright citrus counterbalanced with bruised apple and pie crust. The style is oxidized, broad, complex, and rich.

Second time trying this cuvée and it was a just a great experience. It has great balance of fruit (apple, pear), elegant yet crisp acidity with some weight and texture on the palate. A great champagne for a weekend lunch with the family. Stood up through the whole meal.

Лежалые яблоки, пчелиный воск, черника с молоком, родниковая вода.
Достаточно полнотело, вязко и несколько помпезно (в начале), при этом комплексно, минерально, чисто и стройно. Хорошо раскидывается со временем. Пить из бургундского бокала.
