Hints of roasted walnut and toasted brioche are richly smoky and underscored by flavors of raspberry, lemon confit and green pear in this open-knit Champagne, framed by vivid acidity and a lively bead. Drink now through 2019.

Light, bright gold. Fresh pear and honey on the nose, with a gingery nuance adding lift. Smooth and fleshy, with good back-end lift and a lingering spicy note on the clinging finish. Shows more vivacity and cut than I've experienced with this bottling in recent years.
