Fermented in wood, this mature and rich Champagne is sophisticated and stylish. It has a rich, full-bodied character with hints of spice as well as dry, citrus fruits. It has a steely core, showing a taut texture as well as some maturity. Ready to drink, it will also age in bottle.

A rich version, with a sense of finesse, featuring a frame of well-cut acidity and flavors of poached pear, pastry cream, black currant, candied ginger and salted butter. Offers a creamy, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020.
