The bouquet is striking in its diverse range of complex scents - there are succulent and delicate aromas of white fruit, lemon, mandarin and almonds. Vinous and lively, the palate has a racy acidity and a penetrating, saline texture that prolongs the overall sensation to a long, airy finish. This is a gastronomic Champagne with great ageing potential. This blanc de blancs was disgorged in March 2020 with a dosage of 1.7g/L. It is based on the 2016 vintage, complemented with a 60% foudre-aged reserve wine from the 2015 vintage.--YC, Decanter

Les Pierrières is a 1.2-hectare monopole in Vert-Toulon, the next village over from Collin's home village of Congy. It has a shallow, poor topsoil 10 to 50 cm deep over the rocky subsoil of soft «Campanian» chalk with carbonated silex or Onyx, a rare geological combination in Champagne found specifically in the Coteaux du Petit Morin and key to the Ulysse Collin Champagnes' unique expressions. The exposure is south-southeast. Olivier's first release was 5 400 bottles exclusively from this vineyard.
