The maturity of this champagne is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is revealed next, reminiscent of a beautifully ripe apple or pear. Aromas of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the bouquet. The palate is direct and energetic, supported by a lively yet delicate acidity and a finely chiselled structure, and enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasantly bitter hint of white grapefruit.
