Delicious and breezy pastry shop, honey, posset and quince nose. The dosage is finely judged. A very long carry through the mid-palate is so impressive. Long finish.

13 Jul, 2019 – Large bubbles. A very fruity and fresh Champagne with sliced apple and mango character. Dry. Toasted-bread and brioche undertones. Full-bodied and flavorful. Drink now.
