This wine gains its color from the addition of still red wine, which also points up the vinous, red-fruited flavor. Underneath, the structure is bone-white, its mineral acidity driving the wine forward with the focused tension of limestone-grown fruit. Spicy and satisfying, like a fresh, evanescent Burgundy, this is delicious to drink now and has a long life ahead.

Bright orange-pink. Smoke- and mineral-tinged aromas of raspberry, poached pear, rose oil and sweet butter. Toasty and broad but spry, offering vibrant red fruit and blood orange flavors that pick up a refreshingly bitter edge with aeration. Closes on a spicy note, with excellent focus and slow-building minerality. The fruit for this Champagne is sourced from up to 20 different premier and grand cru villages, including Ay and Verzenay for the pinot noir and Mesnil-sur-Oger for the chardonnay.

A vintage Champagne, close to an aperitif in style, showing fine balance, delicate texture and well-knit, bright acidity. Features a pretty palate of raspberry, spiced apple, biscuit, ginger and lemon zest notes. Drink now through 2027.

Still very young, with the crispest of red currant fruits. There are almond and quince flavors to go with the raspberry juice acidity. At this stage, the dosage is not full integrated, showing an awkward final sweetness. Age for 4–5 years.
