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.
Had for preTasting with Larry for Valentine's Day.

Decanter(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.
Decanter(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.
