About this Wine:

This cuvée has a clear golden hue. The effervescence is long-lasting, with very fine, regular bubbles. The high concentration of Chardonnay makes for a very elegant nose. The start is straight-forward, with a balanced, harmonious body.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points, Rank #5 Top 100 of 2009 & "Editor's Choice" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely crafted wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich. This bottling tastes young and would be worth aging six months." — R.V. (12/1/2009)

92 Points - The Wine News:
"Fresh toasted baguette aromas with a chalk note. Grilled pineapple and peach flavors with a lick of beer barrel. Flinty, chalky, bone-dry finish."

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A toasty version, framed by firm, citrusy acidity, this features a lively bead and flavors of crushed raspberry, grilled nut, candied grapefruit zest and toasted brioche. Drink now through 2018." — A.N.(August 2015)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Light, green-tinged yellow. Musky, mineral-accented pear and peach pit on the nose, with a jolt of lemon zest adding vibrancy and lift. Deep but dry, with very good intensity to its smoky citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Shows very good power and vivacity on the finish, which echoes the mineral note." - (Nov '11)
