"Bright gold with a fine bead. Smoky, powerfully scented bouquet displays lemon custard, buttery brioche and dried flowers. A spicy, focused midweight, offering juicy pear and mineral flavors and a late note of bitter lemon zest. Gains power with air and finishes with lingering pear and mineral notes. This is complex enough to drink now. " (Dec 2008)

"The 2002 Millesime Brut is a beautiful, poised wine that artfully balances fruit and structure. The fruit reveals slightly honeyed overtones, along with suggestions of smoke and minerals that add further complexity. This medium-bodied Champagne closes on a strong note with a long, clean finish. The blend is equal parts Pinot Noir (Montagne de Reims, Vallee de la Marne) and Chardonnay (Cote des Blancs), all from grand cru villages." (Dec 2008)
