Decanter Platinum Award & Best in Show at the 2018 Asia Wine Awards 

Pale to mid-gold in colour, with a very fine mousse. The vintage blend of almost equal parts of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has fine-grained, pure, delicately lifted aromas of crushed stone, plant sap and understated vanilla with just a little creaminess from its yeast lees. It's barely fruity at all, and the classy reticence of the aromas suggest it has many years' ageing ahead. On the palate, it is tight, pure, acidic: a fencer's lunge, in terms of its fine balance and incision; typical of the purity and tight clasp of the '08 vintage. The flavours, too, are restrained and tight-sewn for the time being: bracingly citric and saline. Impressive now but it promises much for the future, too. DRINK 2018-2030 - Decanter Platinum Award & Best in Show at the Asia Wine Awards 

The 2008 Vintage Brut offers a clear and toasty aroma on the nose. Pure, fresh, lean and delicate but complex and mineral on the palate, this is a lithe and elegant, very finessed and persistent 2008 with grip and expression. This is a complex, intense yet light and very elegant Champagne with a pure, mineral-structured and persistent finish. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

An elegant, toasty version, featuring firm, focusing acidity layered with rich hints of canelé, dried apricot, coffee liqueur and star anise. Bright and citrusy, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2027. - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator
