A beautiful fresh nose. Limestone, white flowers, hints of the seashore. A clean berry fruit flavor, rounded and achingly gentle but real presence behind it all. Subtle but delicious.

Very present and correct. Very clear fruit but underlying acidity. Lovely stuff.

This is really tightly coiled. Lemon (verbena?), steeliness, lime and chalk. Real purity and clarity on the palate but super tightly wound. This needs time but there’s quality there.

10 years on lees. The perfect amount of brioche. Yellow apple, Bartlett pear, vanilla on the nose. And a flavor that coats the pallet they is enough to bring heaven to earth.

Got to taste the '02 Salon today that is just now being released. It is mind blowing. One of the greatest Champagnes I've ever tasted, with a very long life ahead of it.

Whoa mama. The structure is here - white pepper, ginger, chalk. First disgorgement of the 02.

This wine is incredible. It has such power whilst being delicate. The length was as long as any wine I have had.
