Ten years - TEN YEARS - on the lees for less than $100? Less than $80, even? Incredible. This is a sophisticated, yet hugely accessible Champagne, with depth, texture, and a honeyed quality saved from being too fruity by the 80% Chardonnay and a backbone of acidity and that coveted toastiness. I first met Paul Fallet at our annual Champagne Tent Event in 2017, where he charmed with his shy, sincere personality, and then dazzled us with his high quality wines. Fallet-Dart is a great family-run Direct Import house to support, and even without the backstory, I'd want to drink these delicious, complex Champagnes. Plus, this is fruit from a Clos, based on the 2004 vintage! We always have customers come too late to this party, and only realize how lovely this Champagne is when our limited quantity is gone. Don't let that be you.
