Definitely dry, this impressively crisp wine is tightly textured, mineral in character and with great fruit. Its acidity and taut tangy character are part of a sophisticated wine that is still maturing. The hints of toast are there, but this beautiful wine will take a while to show its full potential. Drink from 2019.

70% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay, a small parcel (10%) has seen old wood. A complex Champagne, the nose starts out with polished, toasted woody aromas, and hints of fresh mushroom, too. The palate delivers smooth lemon and peach fruits amid layers of spicy fresh field mushroom. Quite savory, dried lemon peel finish. Drink now.

Sleek acidity firms this tightly meshed 2007, a racy frame for flavors of crème de cassis, toast, ground ginger and candied lemon zest. Long and minerally on the finish. Drink now through 2027.
