Expressive, yeasty aromas of apple, warm biscuits, toasted nuts, truffle and minerals. A rich, nutty midweight
with enticing coffee, mushrooms and truffle notes. Smooth and harmonious, with a brisk framing
acidity. Nicely balanced Champagne with good intensity and length.
Wine Spectator 92 points - Plenty of graphite and honey flavors mark this well-structured, effusive Champagne. Lemon, dough and vanilla accents are also present. Finishes with a tactile sensation around the gums. Drink now through 2010. Score: 92. —Bruce Sanderson, November 30, 2006.
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - A big boy with almost fleshy fruit. The flavors push into exotic, tropical richness yet retain spicy citrus-rind highlights. There is nothing clumsy, despite the ripeness; the finish seems to extend almost infinitely and keeps zinging you with surprisesâ€”marshmallow, marzipan, cookie dough, etc. An added bonus: the back label clearly indicates when it was bottled and cellared (2001). Score: 94. —Paul Gregutt, December 01, 2006.
With a balanced portion of all three grape varieties and top growths from throughout the region of
