50 % Chardonnay, 30 % Rosé de Saignée  Pinot Meunier and 20 % Pinot Noir

”There is plenty of petrol character present on the expressive nose though not so much as to dominate the soft citrus, yeast and green apple scents. The generous though not particularly fine mousse makes for a borderline foamy palate impression while the citrus-tinged acidity keeps the middle weight flavors crisp and clean on the moderately dry finish. This is one of those Champagnes where there is no particular characteristic that stands out yet it delivers solid quality anyway.”

“An elegant aperitif, with bright acidity and a finely detailed texture paired with pleasing notes of pastry, green pear, citrus and anise.”

Champagne Blanc de Blancs NV

“Pretty if notably restrained aromas combine whiffs of green apple, floral, yeast and plenty of citrus and in particular Meyer lemon. The crisp, intense and delineated flavors are shaped by a relatively fine if firm mousse while delivering quality depth and length on the nicely dry and ever-so-mildly austere finish. This is an understated and cool version of the genre that packs a punch in the best sense of the term. Note that this could be enjoyed now as there is really very good depth or aged for several years.”

” A light and lively Champagne, with accessible flavors of ripe apple, lemon pith and blanched almond and a tang of salinity on the finish”

Champagne Blanc de Blancs Selection NV                                       Composed entirely of three vintages of reserve wines.                                                                                                                                                                                       

“This offers a bit more aromatic refinement with a pure and very fresh nose of green apple, white flowers and yeast scents that also exhibit lemon-lime hints. There is good detail to the very crisp, cool and restrained flavors that possess excellent persistence as well as a very fine mousse. A classic blanc de blancs that could be enjoyed now or cellared for a few more years first”

Champagne Blanc de Noirs NV

Bright aromas of brioche and crème brulee. On the palate, great tension of small red fruit and hazelnuts, supported by crystalline minerality and chalk.                    Verve and tension in spades with great depth on a medium bodied frame, yet retains it elegance.

Champagne ‘Cuvee Alexandrine’ Blanc de Blancs NV

 Blend of three vintage declared years (2005, 2006 and 2008) 

  “A fruity wine, refreshing and crisp with just the right balance between acidity and citrus flavors and a youthful mineral texture. The wine is certainly crisp, although it is the fruitiness and the tangy character that comes through most strongly. ”

“Although this is certainly dry, it is not searingly so. That comes from the ripe Chardonnay and the delicious white fruits that are well integrated into the mineral texture. The wine is bright, crisp and ready to drink.”

Champagne Cuvee Monsieur Leonard 2009

2009 Brut – Monsieur Léonard: (100% chardonnay, disgorged May 2017).“Now approaching maturity although certainly not leaving its fruit behind, this is a fine structured wine. It has hints of toastiness as well as spice while keeping bright acidity and a tangy texture. The wine is rich still tense and ready to drink.”

“Deep orange with bricking. Clean, profound nose suggestive of fruit butter. Full, generous and well-integrated palate revealing more of the focused fruit. Freshness is present throughout. A beautiful vinous rosé Champagne, ideal for food.”
