Winery NotesPale yellow color, steady stream of fine bubbles, bright. Very citrusy nose, where acacia and rose water balance each other out. Creamy mouth with an exceptional length, the citrus notes (lime and pink grapefruit) give it freshness before melting into notes of fresh hazelnuts and yeasty brioche. This wine will be appreciated both during aperitif or with an appetizer of warm oysters.

The NV Reserve Brut Blanc de Blancs literally sparkles with the essence of mineral-infused Chardonnay fruit, menthol, flowers and smoke. There is superb focus, not to mention a very fine mousse and exceptional length. Lively mineral notes linger on the finish. This is first-class juice all the way. The Reserve Brut Blanc de Blancs is made from grand cru vineyards in Oger and Mesnil-sur-Oger, with a dosage of 10 grams, every bit of which this wine clearly needs. This bottle was disgorged in early September, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011. (Dec, 2008) This family-owned estate is located in Mesnil-sur-Oger. Proprietor Philippe Charlemagne farms 15 hectares of vineyards, most of which are planted to Chardonnay. These are elegant and beautifully balanced wines made in a style that reflects the unique qualities of these terroirs. It would be nice to see disgorgement dates added to the labels.

Fresh and focused, with a panoply of flavors—ripe fruit notes of mango, tangy quince and tangerine, joined by a minerally sublayer of smoke, stone and spice. This shows firm structure and intensity, but the overall juiciness of the acidity makes this very appealing right now. Drink now through 2018. –AN
