"A decadent and rich Champagne on the nose with ripe fruit, intense bread and pie crust. Hints of cream and meringue too. Full-bodied, intense and layered with so much happening. It goes on for minutes. This is fabulous wine in itself. A base of Brut Reserve but aged one more year in the cellar "sur latte." 42 months on yeast. Disgorged in April 2013."

"Superfine citrus-tinged aromas here that give way to more rich stone fruits then red berries; the purity is striking. Minerally accents like crushed rocks, plus dried wild flowers too. The palate's boldly flavored, the concentration is impressive and the energetic drive of acidity is a thrill - long strawberry and red cherry flavors amid some gentle biscuity, red fruited notes to close. Drink now."

"Pale gold, glistening, another fine mousse. A riot of flowers and pâtisserie scents, then a very, very dry palate. As re-tasted in March 2017 at The Champagne Experience in London with 2012 as the base wine: much better maturity, definition, and length."
