$134.95

- From the excellent 10/10 harvest of 2008

- A rich and voluminous style of vintage champagne

- Pair with Scallop tartare with candied lemon and sea salt. 

The nose is mature and showing immediate aromas of bread and pastry followed by apricot and stone fruits.

The palate is developed, rich and broad, going widthways across the tongue. Some roasted pineapple, spice, biscuit and honeycomb emerging.

Overall there is great texture to the wine, showing the complexity of 9 years of ageing.

We advise giving this some time in the glass to develop or better still decant it. Yes, you can absolutely decant champagne, especially vintage styles. 

Technical details: 96% chardonnay, 4% pinot noir; Sézanne; fermented in stainless steel tanks; full malolactic fermentation; aged 9 years on lees under cork; 8g/L dosage; cork
