International Wine Cellar(2000 Vintage) Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 129, November/December 2006. ($74) Pale gold. Suave, vibrant, floral nose combines spicy quince, lemon and white peach and a salty mineral overlay. Brisk, nicely focused and pure, with finely etched flavors of peach, yellow plum and soft citrus fruits complicated by floral honey, mint and macadamia nut. Finishes clean, brisk and sharply delineated, with a subtle note of sweet butter and excellent length.
Wine Spectator(2010 Vintage) A mouthwatering Champagne that’s well-meshed and elegant, setting expressive notes of golden raisin, pineapple pate de fruit, slivered almond and pickled ginger on a finely detailed, satiny texture. Smoky finish. Drink now through 2026.-A.N.
