Beat Krug in Blind tasting!
Blend : 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir from the terroir of Rilly la Montagne, 1er cru.
The year : 80% of the SELECTION comes from the 2007 harvest with 20% reserve wine from 2006. 5 years bottle ageing on lees.
Recommended by Jancis Robinson in The Financial Times November 2010: “A substantial wine…very direct, quite complex, confident attack. Tight bead. Zesty and very fresh.”
Recommended in Oz Clarke’s 2010 250 Best Wines; “This has a full, rollicking, jolly quality to it, hedonism to the fore, a big smile on your face, optimism in your eyes, and all the typical champagne flavours a bit exaggerated…..”
Yet another recommendation, this time Bob Tyrer in the Sunday Times December 2010: “excellent value, fully matured in bottle.”
Also recommended in The Times 14th March 2009.
