90/100 by the Guide DVE 2020
Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Réserve Brut by the DVE Spring 2020 Guide:
Sustained straw yellow color, with golden reflections, brilliant and limpid, a beautiful presentation; the bubbles are fine and lively to form a persistent bead.
The nose is appealing, rich and fine, it associates notes of white fruits (apple and peach) with notes of white flowers (acacia); then come buttery and brioche notes. Aeration is enriched with a touch of citrus as well as a discreet touch of roasted almond.
We have a beautiful expression of ripe Chardonnay. On the palate, we have a distinctive Champagne with a frank and fleshy attack which restores the fruity, floral and acidulous flavors perceived on the nose, it is quite reactive with a lively character. At evolution, we have a fine and racy substance, the dosage which is counterbalanced by a freshness that lightly carries the mouth to the finish. The whole is well balanced, quite straight with a well integrated bubble. Good length, with aromas of toasted hazelnuts and lemon.
