"This vintage opens with a reductive complexity of struck flint and grilled bread unfamiliar in Palmes d’Or. Behind this, the fast-developing personality of the 2006 vintage is displayed in a toasty, secondary style of spice and roast nuts. It culminates in a finish of integrity, marked by just a touch of phenolic bitterness, yet allowing the vibrant acidity and fine chalk minerality of some of Champagne’s most revered grand crus to define a long and well-focused close.
50% chardonnay from Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Montgueux near Troyes; 50% pinot noir from Bouzy, Verzy, Verzenay, Aÿ and Ambonnay."
