one of my favourite producer of sparkling pleasure.
my only reservation was the sweetness (i usually prefer zero dosage to be honest) - but it all went crazy after almost two hours: the fût de chêne opened up like hell, the sweetness integrated, simply put FUN, HARMONY, BLISS.
hence my advise to open it in time resp. to decant it even!

Très boisé en effet. Pas tout à fait assez bulleux a mon goût. Délicieux néanmoins.

Vintage single grower with oak? Unique. Bruised apple and oxidative rich.
