This is hand-harvested Pinot Noir-led Champagne made with as little intervention as possible and very low added SO2. And it's gorgeous. Spirit-lifting loveliness on the nose. Generous baked lemon souffle with bright, red skinned apples, homemade lemonade, sharp but sweet with a hint of lime, lemon curd and pastry. The palate has more of the same, and there's a touch of something riper too - dried mango and white peach. Lovely bright finish full of green apple skin and crystallised lime. The 30% of reserve wine adds textures of cream and flavours of brioche. This isn't like some champagnes with bubbles so defined they almost jump out of the glass and prick your nose, but a lovely soft mousse. Keeps well open for a couple of days too!
