    Simply gorgeous. Elegant pear, citrus, honey and cream. Easy, nuanced, delicate Champagne. Well done, M.DeMarville!

    The wine is gorgeous, and very understated. Whereas the Veuve Clicquot "yellow label" Brut is all about upfront flavor and fruit, the Grande Dame series is entirely subtle and nuanced. The aromas are quite light, with hints of white flowers and fine, flaky pie crust, the fruit, though from the ripe year of 2006 is restrained, but pretty, and the structure has tons of integrity. I am very much impressed with the way this wine is drinking now, and believe it will only improve with age.

    A big surprise! Much more minerality than expected. Cream, golden apples, smoke and almonds on the nose. Big, toasty and mouth filling, though not as big as many other 2006 vintage champagnes. Fleshy mid-palate with golden fruit and dark cherries. Very clean finish. The Chardonnay dominates on the nose, while the Pinot Noir dominates on the palate. More geared toward brightness than the past few vintages.

    This is one of the most elegant, subtle, and delicate bottles in our Champagne section. Crafted entirely from Grand Cru vineyards, this great Champagne could not be further from the mass market style. It is a jewel for the jaded palate, and I can't get enough of its laid back, creamy, detailed style. I had this most recently with a warm Napa Cabbage salad, and it worked perfectly, cooling and refreshing my palate after every savory, bacon loaded bite. It is composed of 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay and has class and length to spare!
    Drink from 2016 to 2036
