Ratings and Tasting Notes:
JS=95 Selected parcels in Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger chosen for power. This has a very impressive grilled hazelnut and gently toasty edge with dried lemon and clotted cream. The palate has immense freshness, length and chalky minerals. Delivers a long, sizzling grapefruit, dried pineapple and lemon finish, that's gently toasty. Superb. Disgorged July 2016. Best from 2020.
WS=93 Firm and well-knit, with fragrant star anise and spring blossom notes accenting the candied kumquat, smoky mineral, toast and lemon pith flavors as they ride the fine and lively mousse. Drink now through 2028.
