Winemaker’s Notes

Sparkling highlights set against a green-gold background with refined, delicate, little bubbles. An initial and extremely elegant touch of sandalwood and cedar gives way to a more generous and hearty bouquet of gingerbread, orange blossom and dried apricot. The lasting aromas are those of meringue, cocoa and liquorice, finishing with a more subtle and complex combination of the underwood, camphor and bergamot orange.The structure of this wine is delightfully gentle and varied, constantly alternating between firmness and warmth, with creamy notes and the deliciouos aromas of cocoa, greengage plums and mango. The overall impression is that of a timeless wine which marvelously expresses all its richness and complexity.

A beautifully bright and expressive Champagne, with precision and vivid acidity throughout; roasted coffee bean and graphite notes lead to a rich palate of toasted brioche, crystallized honey, bergamot and crème de cassis. Exotic ground spice details of cardamom, ginger and anise show on the finish. Tasted from magnum. Drink now through 2030.
