This beautiful Champagne uses fruit from 20 Grand and Premier Cru vineyards and is a blend of 60 percent Pinot Noir and 40 percent Chardonnay. Aged for eight years in the House cellars, this is a complex and layered wine. Stone fruit, lemon and grapefruit show on the nose; to taste, there’s apple, stone fruit and citrus wrapped up with lovely, balanced acidity.

The 2009 Brut Vintage blends 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 grand and premier cru villages in the Montagne de Reims and the Cte des Blancs. Fermented in stainless steel with each variety and each village kept separate and malolactic completed, the 2009 aged eight years in the cellars before being hand-riddled and disgorged. Disgorged in October 2017 and tasted in June 2018, the 2009 shows an intense, concentrated, pretty vinous and profound bouquet of ripe fruit, chalk, brioche and nutty/almond notes. Full-bodied and rich but fresh and even refined on the palate, this is a very elegant, round, charming yet well-structured and vinous Vintage Brut with a clear, fresh, structured and remarkably persistent finish. It drinks already very well today, but its aging potential is most probably stunning.
