Lemon and Citrus generally. Some mineral and a little salt. Overall very refreshing - a better summer time Champagne rather than winter. Very enjoyable but a few grades behind their Coeur du Cuvée which is excellent. Malolactic fermentation blocked in all Cuvées apparently.

My go to wine. Never disappoints. Stunned many first timers with it, and will again, I'm sure. The confidence of Laurent Champs is apparent in every sip. Only gains in complexity with air. Refreshing, delicious, fascinating. Disgorged in fall of 2015.

Digging this disgorgement a lot. Carries more finesse than before, beautiful wine like always.

Such a charming champagne the Grand Cellier! Vilmart & Cie blends this from 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir to great effect running a broad spectrum from fruit to floral countering mineral by texture and persistent pulchritude -a nonchalant beauty off of which one cannot take the eyes. Disgorged June 2015 this is tasting at equipoise right now but would probably even flush out further two more brioche given time. A lovely glass!

Love that the bottle is branded with the disgorgement date. Almost four years ago, seriously toasty but perfectly clean, really good.
