This was the coldest year of the decade. This linear, well-balanced vintage has forged wines for ageing, built for the future; whose aromas will reach a dramatic crescendo as they come to the fore. A vintage calling for patience, slowly developing over time, distinguished and refined. Today the wines linger in the bloom of youth, delivering notes of dried flowers and the gentle touch of gossamer bubbles, while elegantly structured and linear on the palate.
Aromas of bracingly fresh white fruits, dried almonds and apricots, and a slight hint of spice.
Upfront, permeating flavors of redcurrant and citrus fruits. A second wave of pinot noir freshness and streak of minerality, underpinned by a distinctive chalk signature and acutely delicate smoky edge.
Truffles, Parmesan, Foie gras au natural with pepper, Salmon gravlax.
A champagne to be savored with abandon, not revered from afar. Appreciate Palmes d'Or for all that it is: a fine and noble wine, in all its simplicity.
