Light clear straw color in the glass. A fine stream of minuscule bubbles. A very precise and fine mousse with underlying creaminess. You immediately get the message that this is really a very nice Chablis with bubbles. The nose is initially dominated by bright and lively citrus fruits that are just plain uplifting. Some really nice gingerbread and cinnamon aromas begin to emerge slowly. A kick of white pepper and butter. This is one you could honestly just take in for a long time.

A Blanc de Blancs from Grand Cru territory in Tours-sur-Marne. Aged for eight years and disgorged in November of 2020. With a Brut dosage of 6.5 g/l, the acidity is not bracing but it sure is present and welcome. The vinous nature of this champagne is exceptional. Just so nice and clearly terroir driven. Impressive complexity and depth to be found here.

On the palate, there’s a bit of smoky wood to get the party started. Yellow apples and quince, along with pears and peaches. Orange peel and mango shine. A bit of chalk and wet stone minerality just for added measure. This performed well in the Riedel Winewings Champagne glass, allowing it the air to truly blossom.
