|Pinot Noir, Chardonnay|
Winespectator / James Suckling (94)
Elegant overall, with a refined, creamy texture and beautiful integration. This rich Champagne displays power and focus, with expansive flavors of baked currant, plum, bread dough, crystallized honey, ground clove, grated coconut and ginger on the long-lasting finish.
80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay. The house's multi-vintage blend, based on the 2016 vintage deepened by the addition of one-third older wine from a perpetual reserve (solera system).
Deep gold. Not yet released but bursting with energy and interest. I'd very happily drink this now. There is real structure to this wine. Edgy but satisfying, and should probably appeal to a wider range of wine drinkers than the defiantly oak-influenced Argonne. Really very fine.
