Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Light, bright gold. Orange pith, pear and smoky lees on the fragrant nose. Rich, broad and fleshy but energetic, offering juicy orchard fruit flavors and notes of honeysuckle and buttered toast. Shows an exotic note of iodine on the sappy, persistent and smoky finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Expressive, yeasty aromas of apple, warm biscuits, toasted nuts, truffle and minerals. A rich, nutty midweight with enticing coffee, mushrooms and truffle notes. Smooth and harmonious, with a brisk framing acidity. Nicely balanced Champagne with good intensity and length.
