Gorgeous turn around since LBT. Pure, ripe, delicious orchard fruits, brioche, toasted nuts, and chalk. Still a savory/starchy underpinning but this has opened up a lot. 2/2015 disgorgement

Remarkably earthy with plenty of nuance and elegance to spare. Requires some thought but rewards contemplation

Outstanding vintage farmer fizz. Drinking beautifully now, but I'd love to taste this again in 10 years.

A bit too sweet for my taste, but pretty solid.

Wonderful wine. Watching the balloons drift by in the Dordogne Valley while drinking it. Light yeast and great fruit. Gaston Chiquet 2005.
