Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) Finely knit and elegant overall, this vivacious Champagne is creamy and satiny in texture, with layers of yellow plum, chalk, toast, glazed apricot and lemon curd. Offers a lingering, smoke-tinged finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) A warm gold robe with light copper highlights. The slow, regular flow of bubbles is perfectly integrated into the structure of the wine. The bouquet is rich and heady, with a complex succession of juicy fruits (Williams pears), red fruit (light raspberry liqueur) and nuts (hazelnut). There are even a few hints of lightly roasted cocoa alongside warm notes of pastries and vanilla. The bite is an explosion of flavours and silky substance. The juicy, fleshy fruits reinforce the soft smooth caress of the Pinot Noir – all with an overwhelming freshness that is wholly part of the wine’s texture, establishing great harmony. The subtle, controlled woodiness adds a sweet sensation, reinforcing the lightly roasted and vanilla flavours – without dominating the Pinot Noir fruit, which remains the focal point of this blend.
