2007 World Best Sommelier blind tastes our range of champagne and writes down his notes for us.


BRUT MILLESIME 2012: 92/100

Vintage 2012.
Youthful bright straw colour with a vivid mousseux. Pure and bright nose with some chalky hints, pale stone fruit, lemongrass, ripe citrus and brioche. The palate is bright, pure and dense with lovely freshness and harmony, still youthful but well-assembled with purity length and elegant fruit waiting to mature further.

BRUT TRADITION: 90/100

Light golden colour with a copper hue and youthful mousseux. Pure nose, ripe pear, plum, red berries and citrus notes with some lees/autolys. Good grip, medium weight with fine extract, a fresh acidity and balanced mousse, generous fruit, rather Pinot/darker fruit flavours with moderate dosage and good length.

BRUT ROSÉ: 87/100

Rather dark rosé colour with a young foamy mousse. Intense and fruity nose, feels like a rosé de saignée with crushed cherry, strawberry and plum notes. The palate is soft, ample and creamy with generous fruit, rounded acidity and a medium to long fruity finish. Generous style to enjoy young.

BRUT BLANC DE BLANCS: 89/100

Bright pale transparent colour with a young mousseux. The nose displays white flower, citrus and pale fruit with some autolytic notes. Light palate with good bite and freshness, certainly Chardonnay-driven with youthful but balanced mousse and discreet fruit. A fresh and vinous style.

BRUT MILLESIME 2010: 90/100

Vintage 2010.
Bright light golden colour with rather fine bubbles. The nose displays ripe fruit, rather Pinot/darker fruit with plum, cherry, raspberry and some gingerbread spices. The palate is ample and fresh with youthful but ripe fruit, some nutty notes, a mild creamy mid palate and bright freshness on the finish, good length, still youthful with a fine potential for further development.
