2008 is one of the highest rated vintages in history for Champagne. Only the juices from first pressing – the cuvées - are used. Nose of freshly pressed black grapes, of red, white and citrus fruits. Ample palate with flesh of vineyard peach and bouquet of aromatic herbs. Small spicy notes in the finish. A fine, tightly knit Champagne of great purity.

Jancis Robinson MW

Prestige cuvée of the house. Eponymous single vineyard. 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay. Vinified 35% in foudres. Malo done. Bottled April 2009, disgorged September 2016 – seven years and five months on lees. Dosage 5.5 g/l (wood-aged dosage). Pale gold. Tight, introvert, putty nose. Lots to open out from here with a strong citrus streak. Real grip on the palate. Exciting wine but not quite ready. - 17.5+ points, reviewed 7 June 2018
