Sweet and floral. Lovely delicate lemon curd with a hint of sandalwood and minerality. Delicious- open and fun.

Global Champagne Day 2018...Why not?

@Casey @ Travelling Corkscrew I'm not going to sabre this one, maybe another time. Nice post/feature today.

Seemed excessively frizzante when we opened the bottle, more mellow after an hour, quite nice. Lightly brioche, the Chardonnay is more prominent tonight. Light caramel on under-ripe peach, delish. At hour two, lightly saline, red fruit arrives, the terroir is making an appearance.

Great depth to the fruit with sizzling acidity. Amazing material- built for aging but dazzling even now. Great fun now but super young

60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. Aged 10 years on the yeast. Subtle and rich and the same time, with superb balance and length. Seems a shame to drink now.; best to wait 5-10 years.
