Once again its all class from this standout producer. On the nose, ripe yellow fruits marry harmoniously with soft chalky minerality. Next comes a wave of pastry notes which are very alluring and a direct result of increased ageing of the wine in the cellar.
We can't wait any longer, we need to dive in! The palate follows through on all the aromatic pleasures; silky smooth and striking the perfect balance between poise and power. This wine is all we want a vintage champagne to be - decadent, layered, mineral-driven, toasty and with exceptional length on the palate. We also like some of that spicy-chalky play on the finish. The 2008 vintage was one of the standout vintages of the decade and they are all but gone. Buy this cuvée now and keep some in the cellar for future years, you will thank us later.
For the breakdown, this is 58% pinot noir coming from the historic 'Le Leon' vineyard parcel in Aÿ and 42% chardonnay sourced from the grand cru site of Les Mesnil Sur Oger. The disgorgement was in March 2018 which means there has been a generous 8 years on lees with about 50% of the wine matured in barrel and NO malolactic fermentation to preserve the natural acids.
