France - Champagne   

Selected from 15 different vineyards located in the Marne Valley, in the Aube and the small Mountain of Reims.

With a light amber color and fine bubbles, full-bodied with a full mixture of white fruits. Dominating taste of hazelnuts and grilled almonds. This is a crisp, delicate, fresh, creamy and elegant champagne with just a touch of yeastiness.

I Wine Review"Medium gold color with a rich, seductive nose of roasted grains. Shows an elegant attack and a very fine, rich mousse. Finishes very dry but long. Dried lemon peel and toasted bread are evident on the richly textured palate with notable mineral character. Finishes very dry and long."

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Based in the village of Hautvillers, reputedly the birthplace of Champagne, this producer's nonvintage wine is fruity, fresh and has a good balance between the structured Pinot and the steely Chardonnay. The wine is ready to drink. - ROGER VOSS"

The palate offers a frothy mousse and light orchard fruit flavors with a gentle, somewhat fleeting finish. A blend of 35% Pinot Noir, 35% Meunier, and 30% Chardonnay from 15 different vineyards in the Valle de la Marne, Montagne de Reims and the Aube and given 24 months on the lees in bottle. 7-8 g/L RS"

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 88 Pts“Light gold. Musky pear and white peach on the nose, with a dusting of nutmeg and dried flowers adding complexity. Firm and dry but offering sweet orchard fruit flavors and a late-arriving honey quality. Finishes with good grip and persistence.”
