A lovely bronze/golden tinge to the colour. Effervescence is fine and long-lasting. An impressive nose that is intense and exceedingly rich, complex and concentrated from the start. Two types of fruit notes dominate: candied - almost cooked - fruits and citrus fragrances.
Aerating the wine reveals vanilla notes of rare elegance, underpinned by mineral scents. On the palate, a forthright first impression quickly gives way to the structure. Hints of liqueur and candied citrus give the wine beautiful freshness.
A voluptuous, long finish.
56% Pinot Noir, 11% Pinot Meunier, 33% Chardonnay.
Dosage - 4g/l sugar
"Rich flavors and aromas of bread pudding and molasses mix with hints of baked peach, biscuit, ground ginger, fleur de sel and candied orange zest. Elegant, this shows lovely balance, a subtle bead and a delicate yet persistent freshness."

"This toasty, superbly mature wine is part of a series of releases featuring the house's cellar-matured Champagnes. This emerges from the glass with complex flavors of almond, brioche, citrus and a hint of steeliness. The majestic richness of the wine has fully justified its decades of aging."
