An incredibly fresh and vibrant wine, especially given its age. In fact, the maturity has only imparted a depth and richness that deepens its complexity but doesn't diminish its refreshment.

Nice depth to the nose here, with aromas of buckwheat honey, caramel and toast. The palate is rich in notes of mushrooms, almonds, warm applesauce, caramel, toast, spice and cookie dough. This is showing its maturity, certainly, but has not lost its intensity or character. Ends with a crisp finish and superb length. This is a fantastic mature Champagne, at an exceptional price.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
