Medium yellow hue, with a toasty, bready, nougat-like aroma and lots of fresh bakery notes. The palate is light to medium-bodied and dry, savoury, concentrated and serious. The balance is excellent, dry and appetising. There are meringue-like pinot noir aromas and flavours in abundance. Rich, full-bodied, powerful and long. Serious food style, low dosage champagne.

Gorgeous aromas and flavours of pure red cherries, plums and mixed spice evoke all the glory of one of Champagne’s greatest grand crus. The purity and poise of the scintillating 2008 season are presented with pinpoint accuracy within the generosity of the village. Eight years of age has built an undercurrent of toasty, spicy complexity, but the focus remains on the impeccable, tense acid definition of 2008, framed immaculately in the fine chalk mineral texture of Ambonnay. This is a 2008 ready to drink now."
