Old gold. Evolved, extremely focused nose with accents of walnuts. More of the same personality on the palate, with a pronounced rancio streak. Clean, slightly lean, yet retaining very savoury aromatic strength.
Will you dare to go the distance with this beauty?
An unalloyed Grand Cru made from top grapes grown in the famous Bouzy and Tours sur Marne districts, this is a tour de force! It’s a powerful style, with plenty of yeasty complexity and attractive yellow fruit notes, yet compact and focused. The mousse is lively, the finish long and fine. Expressive nose, mature, with classic notes of ripe cherry and raspberry. A lovely, harmonious earthy champagne that will delight.
