A vinous style. Bread dough and beef bouillon aromas highlight this broad, waxy Champagne. It’s complex and appealing, with a velvety texture and nutty finish. Drink now through 2009.
Light gold, with a vigorous mousse. Smoky red berries, cherry pit and cocoa powder on the pungent nose. Big, richly textured Champagne, with strong apple, musky yellow plum and ripe pear flavors. A densely flavored bottling that finishes with strong mineral and citrus zest notes. Serve it now as an aperitif or hold it for a few years.
The rich texture offers a haven for graphite, citrus and vanilla flavors, while the firm structure keeps it all focused and drives the lingering finish. Drink now through 2011.
Rich and biscuity, like a wine that happens to have bubbles, this displays nut, honey and dough aromas and flavors on a full-bodied, open-knit structure. Long grilled almond and honey aftertaste. A Champagne for those who like the full-bore style.
Floral and berry notes are well-balanced in this elegant, lively Champagne. It’s balanced and persistent through the finish, where a light chalky sensation prevails. Drink now.
A floral Grand Cru elegantly focused with strawberry and lime flavors that explode on the palate; grown in the heart of Montagne de Reims and blended with 80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay.
Chalky and steely as Chablis, this is more a wine than a Champagne. Its briny scents of oyster shells and full, toasty softness offer their own potent pleasures. Serve it with lobster in a Cantonese-style ginger and scallion glaze.
