Characterised by rare freshness, this cuvée is delightfully chiseled and saline whilst also displaying the fullness of a prolonged lees ageing. The illustrating artwork was created by French artist Anne Commet inspired by the theme "Liberté."
A brilliant, pale gold tint, with a fine and chiselled effervescence. Nose: A both fresh and biting, and generous. Primary notes of cooled ashes and white flowers (hawthorn), opening somewhat slowly to reveal white peach and lemon verbena, with fresh almond. Palate: Lively and precise, with a crystalline and limpid attack, diffusing a beguiling salinity. The wine then settles in the mouth with a texture that is both ample and molten. There is almost a minty freshness on the palate, accompanied – as the wine opens up – by a slightly fleshy fruitiness plums which evolves towards roasted hazelnuts. It calls for the texture of monkfish or prawns as an accompaniment.
94 Points, Jamie Goode
”From the Grand Cru villages of Oger and Mesnil-sur-Oger. Disgorged in May 2021 after seven years on lees, dosage 4.5 g/litre. Concentrated but delicate and fresh with a pure citrus fruit palate, with some subtle saltiness and a hint of oyster shell. It’s very bright with a lovely transparency across the palate: no sign of heaviness and a lovely acid line, with fine toastiness and the crispness of a cold Autumn morning. Pure lemony fruit runs the show here: serious, assured.”
