The bouquet is quite fruit-driven (peach and pear) and elegantly floral (spring flowers and lemon tree blossoms), but there is also some autolytic complexity that adds a subtle grace note of hazelnut. With aeration, the nose takes on an added dimension. The texture in the mouth is juicy, moderately dense with very fine bubbles and beautifully balanced acidity. Notes of menthol, anise and white fruits add to the impression of freshness and vivacity. This is a well-structured, energetic Champagne with a long finish, but it has charm as well, making it perfect to serve as an aperitif. Disgorged: spring 2020. Dosage: 8g/L.
