The NV Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru is powerful, dense and immediate, with terrific mid palate density and real sense of gravitas. Expressive and layered through the middle, the 1er Cru possesses gorgeous energy and resonance. Orchard fruit, slate, smoke and wild flowers meld into an expansive finish supported by beams of salinity. Disgorged: 07/14.

Shows lovely balance, with the lacy mousse carrying a subtle mesh of poached pear, floral, graphite, biscuit and grated ginger notes. Well-knit acidity leads to the toasty finish. Disgorged July 2014. Drink now through 2020. 679 cases imported.
