The champagne of James Bond (the movie version) never disappoints. Full bodied, generous, with gorgeous mousse. Works with food or canapés. It's the BMW of champagne - reliable, sexy, luxurious with perfection in the detail.

Limes, lemon and ginger on the nose. Very acidic attack, with a powerful mousse of bubbles. Nice quince flavors with a clean soft biscuit note. Soft finish on gentle sugars which give it honeysuckle hint. Tasted at Tengley Oaks. 1 million magnums of this are in the cellars, some of this wine is barrel aged, which is rare for a Champagne of this level. 60% pinot noir lends acidity to this big, bold chamapagne.

Champagne as good as it gets. Bond. James Bond loves it too. And so far it's the best thing I ever tasted. Looks like Gold and is rather affordable. My best friend has a 2000 vintage waiting for a special day to celebrate life and live it. Long Finish

yeasty biscuit dough aromas and a pleasing touch of oxidation and funk on the nose. Rich round and full bodied with a persistent mousse. This is a classic.

Yum. Yum. Why does he champagne style I prefer. Full-bodied, yeasty and toasty and screaming of baked lemon goods. I much prefer this to the lighter, more floral Champagnes out there.

Always a rich non-vintage, this latest bottling doesn't disappoint expectations. It has a rich, biscuity character, hints of toast along with pure citrus and fresh apricots. It is ripe, generous, to be drunk with food.

This brisk and savory wine has the smooth creaminess of lemon curd lightened by lime zest and white flowers. It feels rich rather then weighty, the bubbles lifting the flavors like a mist rising off limestone. Delicious with anything saline, whether cherrystones or Kumamotos.

A great house; incredible bang-for-the-buck; pinot driven, with great yeasty notes; sweet poached apples and toffee accented by crisp acidity; elegant, rich and complex.

Good character here, showing malt, bread dough, citrus and mineral flavors matched to a lightweight, vibrant frame. It has moderate intensity and a lingering finish. Drink now.

Seamless aromas of oatmeal and bread dough complemented by flavors of white chocolate and raw mushrooms; great length of the mid-palate with crisp racy acidity; pairs well with creamy wild mushrooms risotto.

Starts out lean and focused, displaying citrus, mineral and yeast nuances. It expands on the palate, showing depth and length, with an aftertaste of hazelnut. Drink now.

Has a delightful creamy scent of spice and vanilla, with yeasty nuances. The rich, full, balanced, creamy flavors resemble the aromas and the finish is long — lovely.
