Beautiful clear pale gold color with extremely fine bubbles and excellent mousse. Wonderfully projected aromas of candied lemon, acacia, white flowers and hazelnut. On the palate there is tightly focused citrus and crisp minerality - this is one of the subtlest and most complex Champagnes I've tasted in a long time. Elegant, pristine balance with great vinosity. Powerful but equally delicate and graceful. Just beautiful,
