"From a ripe vintage, this soft, generous wine has a good balance between its acidity and its smooth, creamy character. The wine is crisp now and could probably do with some bottle age to bring out its inherent richness. Wait until 2018."
"Finely balanced and fresh, delivering a smoky underpinning layered with flavors of spiced plum, candied kumquat, toast and smoked almond. Creamy finish. Drink now through 2026."
Wine & Spirits
"This ripe and fruity vintage is an equal blend of chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and pinot noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne, all grand cru fruit. It has a delicate red fruit scent and a bright, lasting flavor that merges with orange-zest spice. There’s enough structural grip under all that fruit to sustain the wine as it ages."
