A restrained, indeed all-but-inexpressive nose only grudgingly reveals notes of yeast and apple with background floral whispers. There is actually pretty good complexity to the delicious if very round flavors that finish drier than the dosage level would suggest though the operative word is drier, not dry. Still, for those who enjoy a rounder style of Champagne that offers fine depth and no austerity, this is worth a look. I should note that it’s not a style that I look for personally but this is still well-made.
(60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay; 17.5 g/l dosage; L4110HB00700): Bright yellow. Deeply perfumed aromas of poached pear, melon, nectarine and lemon curd are complemented by suggestions of buttered toast, anise and chamomile. Plush and broad on the palate, offering ripe citrus and pit fruit flavors with a touch of chalky minerality adding cut and lift. A floral quality builds slowly with air and carries through the spicy, sappy, gently sweet finish. I like this Champagne's balance of fruitiness and vivacity and there's no way that I'd have guessed that its dosage was so high. (JR)
Intense fresh bread and toasted almond characters, apple tart and hint of spice. Touch of sweetness, nice balance. Fine bubbles. Long finish. (LPB)
Balanced by citrusy acidity, this shows hints of pastry, poached pear, smoky mineral and toasted almond on the lively bead. (Web-Only 2014)
