” Always the finest wine of the house, now rightly promoted as their prestige cuvée. A luminous gold colour with green tints indicates how youthful this still is. It is hard to do justice to its very high quality – latent power and density without heaviness, and supreme finesse. Brillant with wood-roasted turbot. One of the greatest wines of a great year. ” (2/2017)

” A very composed Champagne with plenty of still fresh lemon and white cherry fruits on offer. There’s impressive clarity, power and richness here. The nose has candied peach, strawberry, white cherry and grilled nuts. Very flavoursome palate with pastry flavours adding savory notes to the stone fruits and citrus. Toasted almonds and chalky minerals define the long finish. Still so young and powerful! “(10/2017)

” With its ripe fruits, rich texture and layers of toast, this is a great wine. It shows the quality of the great 2002 vintage brilliantly. It’s complex and concentrated with an array of mature fruit flavors that combine to a structured whole.”  (12/2013)

” There’s a buoyant, almost ethereal quality to this elegant Champagne, offering a rich range of blackberry pâte de fruit, crystallized honey, grilled nut and oyster shell flavours, set on a fine, chalky mousse. Long and mouthwatering, with a clean, citrus-infused finish. ” (11/2015)
