ITEM 8296319 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased from a private collector
...has impeccable detail and depth with a lot of chalky, stony and flinty elements on the nose as well as a very fresh edge... ...aromas of lemon rind, lime juice and a lime custard all at once... ...sizzlingly intense, concentrated chardonnay framed within a powerful phenolic structure that will underpin the future of this Champagne. Flawlessly fresh and as perfect as it gets. (October 2016)
Red fruit flavors on the nose lead to a generously rich yet pure, highly refined and elegant palate, with lots of ripe cherry fruits and delicious yeasty flavors.
Beautifully aromatic, this leads with aromas of ground clove, coffee liqueur and mandarin orange peel, adding crystallized honey, dried cherry, acacia blossom and toasted brioche notes on the expansive palate.
Expansive and creamy on the palate, with lovely finesse and brightness...
Fresh and ferny initially. Zesty and medium intensity. Dry and chalky finish. Super neat but not showy at all.
