Sourced in 20 Premier and Grand Crus of the Cote de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, the 2006 Vintage Brut is a cuvee of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that was aged for nine years in the 33 meters deep cellar in Epernay. The deep golden-colored wine offers a deep and vinous, very clear and elegant nose of sweet cherries, stewed and baked apples, ripe stone fruits, cinnamon, chalk, brioche, sweet paprika, orangeade and dashes of lemon juice. Full-bodied, rich and round on the palate, this is a creamy textured though pure and highly elegant, firmly structured, powerful and persistent Champagne; it has a noble and rested expression, as well as a long, noble finish. This is midnight Champagne for noble jazz clubs with fine piano music, or to be matched with noble cigars.

Bright and lithe in weight, boasting a silky texture, this finely knit\ and elegant Champagne offers abundant ripe fruit flavors and notes of toasted raisin bread, candied kumquat and dried apricot. Spice and smoke details echo on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2030.-A.N.
