Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Cellar Master's tasting notes:

The colour is a beautiful straw with gold overtones.

The nose is especially ethereal, fine and delicate.

Light, almost smoky tones reminiscent of the Orientoffer gently herbaceous notes of eucalypt, thyme,sage and wild mint.

On the palate, the wine is immediately soft and yet savoury. Golden fruit flavours such as mirabelle and yellow peach come to the fore, leading on to this wine's full complexity and length.

Finally on the brink of maturity, this cuvee is opening up to show all the magnificent ageing potential and class of a great 2002 Champagne.
