Honeycrisp apple, orchard blossom and spun honey notes are ripe and aromatic in this finely knit Champagne, framed by mouthwatering acidity and a tang of salinity. Creamy, with rich hints of toasted almond and smoke on the lasting finish. Disgorged January 2015. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported.

Vinification and maturing Slow, gentle pressing using gravity-flow techniques.

Disgorged by hand and laid down for at least three months before sale. Dosage: 8 g/litre. Tasting notes Eye: Golden in colour with a fine, lingering bead Nose: Intense with notes of fruit and hazelnuts and a slight toastiness Palate: The initial impact is wonderfully fresh and vinous, followed by great finesse.
