Pale golden yellow; the fine, steady bubbles rise gracefully. The nose is both mineral and floral, revealing aromas of flowers, white fruits, apricots, Mirabelle plum and light notes of lemon, citrus fruit, quince jelly and honey. White flowers mingle with a hint of toastiness. There is a silky and harmonious sensation for this crisp, structured champagne.
The Grand Blanc de Blancs Brut makes the perfect apéritif; its freshness also makes it ideal for pairing with many dishes, including scallops, crab remoulade or gougères.
Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs gives this Champagne its typical mineral edge that partners with open apple fruits and crisp acidity. The wine perfectly marries fruit and texture. Drink now. Wilson Daniels Ltd.

The most subtle lemony cloud hovers above a certain chalkiness on the nose. Utter subtlety also characterises the super-svelte palate that is as light as a feather, yet conveys great depth and creamy softness. The freshness seems buffered by chalk, the mousse serves to remind you that this is actually Champagne, so breezy, so light, so elegant is this. A wonderful combination of depth and weightlessness.

A toasty version, with sleek acidity sculpting the layers of Meyer lemon peel, papaya, toasted brioche and lime blossom flavors. Tightly meshed, with a well-cut, lingering finish of smoky mineral. Disgorged May 2018. Drink now through 2024.
