TASTING NOTE: Very interesting wine this and not your average Champagne thanks to its blend of pinot meunier and chardonnay which provides a youthful and complex style. It immediately bursts with pinot character - toastiness plus a line of strawberry fruits before leading to quite a full and rich palate for Champagne. There is an attractive, creamy, food-friendly texture too supported by crisp but not dominant acidity which makes for a great everyday Champagne when guests pop around. Drink: 2021-2025.
