Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - December 2013

(70% chardonnay and 30% pinot noir, mostly from 2010 and the rest from 2009 and 2008; aged for 16 months on its lees and disgorged in November, 2012):  Green-tinged yellow.  Fresh pear, nectarine and honeysuckle aromas are complemented by smoky minerals and gingery spices.  Deep, chewy orchard fruit flavors are brightened by hints of Meyer lemon and orange zest and firmed by a note of smoky minerality.  Powerful but elegant brut with juicy acidity providing strong finishing lift and bite.

This champagne was a gift for a special occasion. I enjoy drinking champagne and this was a very nice surprise! I will purchase this wine again.

Hint: look for the disgorgment date on the lower-right corner of the FRONT label...give it at least 3-4 years!

These component wines come from different grape varieties (the white grape Chardonnay and the red varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and from different villages and vineyards. And because only four or five harvests per decade...

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
