70% Chardonnay from Grand and premier cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs; 30% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims. No malo. Dosage: 8 g/l.
Yellow-gold. Less floral; toastier. The finish is scrupulously dry. Not a blockbuster. Classic. Now – 2022.
Yellow-gold. A vaporous ’02, the embodiment of all things springtime, lyric and floral and limey. Fresh, high-flying autolysis flavors. The finish is tensile and piquant. Not as sappy as some from this vintage; she’s more an agent of renewal. Now – 2022.
