Terrific nose. Round body with insistent spine of acid. Some apricot, bread notes.

NV. Base wine 2007. Fut de Chene. At Texture. One step below the Argonne from this producer. Ay based producer known for Pinot Noir dominant wines. Lovely nose - rich deep golden hue (indicative of new oak / oxidation maturation), lots of rich creamy oak notes. Oxidative style. On the palate, very rich - maybe too rich - round and slightly fat. Apricot, butterscotch and nuts. Decent length. Not bad at all if you are a fan of the style.

Very nice #champagne I was told that its flavor profile resembles the winemaker at Henri Giraud, a tall and strapping man who loves a good cigar. It's bold and corpulent and is a full-on expression of the oxidative style

Золотистое. Пышное, богатое, хлеб, курага, грибы. Средняя кислотность и тело. Отличный баланс.
