Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Little Pinot Gris Yeasty then fairly complex on the nose with with bitter melon, chalk, sweet herb, and candied fennel seed. aromas. A little creamy on entry then showing fairly big Meyer lemon, apple and a hint of green walnut flavors on the palate which is nicely layered and nuanced with a fine mousse. This shows good length good length, refreshing acids and a bit of pithy grapefruit on finish. Fruity but fresh and well balanced. 88pts

Cuve M exhibits a graceful stream of very fine bubbles gently rising to a persistent mousse cordon with a light peach rose color. The aromas are elegant rich and complex showing fresh white and yellow stone fruits with subtle hints of wild strawberry. A light touch of fresh brioche with hints of vanilla and honey add to the wines complex bouquet. On the palate full flavors of peach and pear combine with a creamy caramel character which lingers into a long satisfying finish.
