What to expect


This is a step up from the linear and fresh 2006. It shows subtle depth and power with a dense block of vivid fruit that's highlighted with lemon zest, green apples and hints of white peaches. Just the right amount of praline and nuts on the nose. Fine and tight bead give the Champagne a luxurious mouthfeel. One for now or the cellar. Drink or hold. James Suckling

Tiny bead. Hugely aromatic and super-tense but expressive too. Very much a Blanc de Blancs and very fine indeed. Wonderful aperitif. Massive acidity but the Bose compensates for it. Green fruits and great finesse. - Jancis Robinson

Suggested serving temperature for this wine and other vintage wines would be around 10-12 degrees Celsius. You will also discover more of the wine by doing this.

Food suggestion


Rich, ethereal and mineral with lemon curd and biscuity notes. Heaven. We love this champagne with a seafood risotto and a squeeze of fresh lemon and a sprinkling of parmesan to finish!
