Wine Description

An elegantly fresh and delicate Champagne blended from a high proportion of Chardonnay grapes to yield a refined flavor palette of pear and stone fruits offset by warm, yeasty notes and hints of breadcrust.

    40% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir, & 25% pinot meunier. 3-4 years aged. Aromas of peach, white flowers, vanilla, and brioche. Fresh fruit and honey suckle on the palate. Fine, persistent bubbles.

    (1990 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. A powerful, earthy nose of nuts and yeast. An elegant, perfumed and balanced palate of cream, biscuits and nuts.

    (1996 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Since I recommended this one last year it has continued to develop and improve. Still delicately textured with floral aromas to the fore, it's a soft, feminine style of rosé with light red berry fruit and an engagingly creamy mousse.
