Tasting notes
On the eye: Sparkling, crystalline pale gold with slight green highlights. Abundant effervescence, fine and regular, with fine, delicate bubbles. On the nose: Pure, concentrated and expressive, with floral (honeysuckle, orange flower, linden), fruity (lemon, dried apricot, almond) and pastry aromas, followed by spicy notes. On the palate : The attack is dynamic, full and powerful, with aromas of lightly toasted brioche, quince jelly and acacia honey. The clean, delicious finish develops on a light menthol note and shows excellent length.

 Wine Spectator 92 points (Nov 30 2014)
Rich and toasty, yet light-footed, with an airy mousse and bright acidity enlivening the palate of dried apricot, lemon meringue pie, toasted brioche and candied ginger. Offers a creamy, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,000 cases imported.-AN
 Vinous 91 points (Jan 2015)
(10 g/l dosage; L1323710513): Pale yellow-gold. Fragrant melon, white peach and tangerine aromas are complicated by smoky lees and floral honey. On the palate, supple melon and pit fruit flavors are energized by smoky minerality. Shows a gently sweet touch and finishes with excellent cut, clarity and persistence.
