Lots of candied cherries and berries. Full-bodied and easy. Fine bubbles and a fruity finish. More of a sec with a off-dry finish. Fun. Drink now.

A fresh, off-dry Champagne with a round texture and an easy finish. Medium body. Creamy. Cooked apples and pears. Some candied apple, too. Flavorful finish. Five years on the lees. It is more like a Extra-Sec Champagne with a higher dosage that the normal Brut Reserve non-vintage. Drink now.

A firm, fresh Comtes with a tight and composed palate. It’s full-bodied with a racy mid-palate. Long and persistent. Very structured with phenolics and acidity. Minerally. Floral, too. Refreshing and energetic. September 2021 release. Drink or hold.

The perfect blanc de blancs. Full-bodied with a lovely framework of acidity and dry fruit, such as apples, pears and peaches. Opulent. Dense and muscular. Yet, it’s balanced and harmonious. Line of acidity at the end. Totally in tune. Superb. Deep and complete. Has everything. One for the cellar. It is the greatest Comte ever. It has everything. A perfect upgrade from two years ago. Drink or hold.
