Chef de cave Florent Nys calls 2007 'the www vintage: wind, warmth and water'. The balance of all three was just right to ensure top-quality fruit at harvest. This is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay with 4g/l dosage. So although this is an extra brut style, the 5% vinification in oak casks, 10 years on its lees, and partial malolactic fermentation gives a creamy, toasty edge to the focussed palate. With flavours of hazelnut praline, lifted florals and real purity of peachy citrus, this is a complex, vinous Champagne that needs time to shine. (TG)
A complex Champagne, the nose starts out with polished, toasted woody aromas, and hints of fresh mushroom, too. The palate delivers smooth lemon and peach fruits amid layers of spicy fresh field mushroom. Quite savory, dried lemon peel finish.
75% Pinot Noir from Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and the Montagne de Reims and the rest Chardonnay from top villages on the Côte des Blancs. Dosage just 4 g/l but it doesn't taste at all austere. Deep green gold. Very tight bead and on the palate tense but fully ripe. Tastes much mellower than 4 g/l. Very successful. 17.5/20
