- This has spent a whopping 22 years on lees!

- For those who like aged champagne with great intensity and darker colour.

- Pair with aged parmesan

Giving some time in the decanter, the wine starts to open up showing baked bread, toasted hazelnut and a distinct Fino-Manzanilla Sherry notes going on with a definite salinity on the tongue.

Being from a warmer year, having extended time on lees and late disgorgement the development of the wine is substantial with ample flavour, volume and texture. Don't expect much in the way of acidity or mousse as this falls away as the wine gets older.

Overall, this is a wine enjoyed by those who love richer, more vinous styles of champagne. We have access to the last remaining bottles in the country. Give it a go!

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

Disgorged: October 2018
