Not the longest or most complex champagne but pointing out shortcomings is fairly challenging

Bright! Green apple galore. Doughy. Some lime zest and green gooseberry. Developing minerality. Mousse could be finer, and needs more time in the cellar, but overall very good. Base ‘11 through ‘16, disgorged ‘18

Disgorgement 25 June 2018 dosage: 6 g/l. 100% Chardonnay. SO GOOD. Great biscuity, yeasty character with ripe fruit wrapped in acid. Yum.
