(2018) I often struggle with this vintage, the combination of over-the-top ripeness and botrytis can be rather cloying. Fortunately for us, this Champagne possesses neither in excess, although I wouldn’t age it for too long. Elegantly toasty, with a touch of mushroom on the nose. The palate is all about youthful stone fruits that turn quite juicy in the glass. I suspect a short and sharp evolution for this wine, maybe wait one or two years for the walnut richness to emerge. Drink from 2019 until 2023.
