Met up with @Kimberly Anderson and @Chad Anderson in Chicago with my Dad. They brought this outstanding bottle for happy hour at Bellemore. This was 80/20 Chardonnay/Pinot Noir. Creamy, balanced and noticeable purity. Marked acidity and length. Paired 👌🏽 with kampachi crudo apps and exceptional company!

Nose of almond biscotti. The palate shows stone fruit, key lime cheesecake. Delicious

Like pillows of lemon meringue and clouds of quince. Ethereal.

70% Chardonnay & 30% Pinot Noir from two parcels in Rilly-la-Montagne. Does not go through malolactic. Oak aging in large barrelS. Always liked this producer and feel he goes a lot easier on the oak now. Good weight, a food Champagne. Intense chalky notes with touch of toast and tarragon. A strong finish that ends with rich flavors of lemon confit and orange zest.

Absolutely one of my favorite NV bubblies. Creamy, biscuity, and salty lemon squares.

Wonderfully bright and crisp, with mostly mineral sea air and lemon plus a touch of saltine cracker.
