Striking a perfect balance between youthfulness and maturity, seduction and character, vinosity and freshness, Brut Premier is a champagne that is harmonious and structured, elegant and lively, with a unique exuberancy. Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.
Brilliant yellow colour displaying light amber nuances, combined with an ultra-fine, persistent, soft effervescence. There's an intense, highly expressive bouquet on the first nose! The aromatic elegance and precision of Chardonnay is apparent: white fruit, sweet pollen, fine citrus fruit and very pure minerality. After a few minutes, the aromas move on to more confit, lightly grilled hints. The bouquet is rich and sweet, almost generous, remaining precise and impeccably refined. The bite in the mouth is full and creamy, revealing an incredible concentration of juicy fruits: yellow peach, apricot, mango and others. This silky, meaty concentration, which is both dense and soft - and typical of great Pinot noir - is immediately combined with a sophisticated touch of acidity, ringing the wine alive with minerality. The overriding impression is one of a true harmony of flavours, senses and silky textures... Absolute sensuality.

The full texture precedes a clean, refreshing finish marked by citrus fruit aromas.

Dom Ruinart 2002 reveals a vibrant, clear yellow colour enhanced with highlights of green almond. The mousse is fine and elegant. The youth of the wine is evident on the nose with aromas of white flowers (linden blossom), fresh yellow plums, nashi pears and bergamot citrus character. Allowing it to breathe reveals a rich base, with notes of biscuits and coconut followed by hazelnuts. The intensity is highlighted by a mineral, minty freshness. On the palate the freshness of citrus and tropical fruit culminates with superb mineral quality and a touch of gunflint. The result is a focussed purity and exceptional length supported by subtle effervescence and beautifully integrated vibrant acidity.
The colour is a delicate pomegranate pink with very slightly orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent foam. The nose is subtle and fresh, first offering an original palette of tropical fruits (guava and lychee) and small berries (raspberries, cherries and wild strawberries) in the first instance. These are followed by rose and pomegranate notes which complete the complex, intense aromatic profile, dominated by somewhat undeveloped primary aromas. On the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The aromas of freshly picked berries are fully expressed. The balance brings together a delightful freshness and voluptuous body, expressed by an elegant bracing touch of mint and pink grapefruit.
Very broad and rich compared with the other wines in this line-up of growers' champagnes. Quite incredible to think that this is an Extra Brut in view of the richness on the palate. Clean, refreshing, fabulous! Very long.
Beautiful pale golden yellow colour with gentle green reflections, a vibrant, luminous colour. Active effervescence with a persistent release of bubbles. At first very intense on the nose, with fresh fruit notes, particularly ripe citrus fruits. A second refined floral nose with notes of white flowers and fruits (white peaches, pineapple). A supple, harmonious attack on the palate, very rounded. Vinosity that is not excessive, supported by excellent freshness. Notes of nectarines, citrus fruits with a pleasant mineral quality in the finish. Long, very refreshing finish.
Made exclusively of Chardonnay grapes, it undergoes three-year maturation in caves. This champagne is clear and brilliant with a golden straw colour with greenish flashes and has an extremely fine and persistent perlage. Finer and more delicate to the nose than most due to its various floral (lime and lilac), fruity (apricot) and spicy (vanilla) scents, its sweet fruity flavours and floral, honeyed bouquet make it pleasant on the palate. Well structured in its acidulous and sweet parts, it features excellent persistence of flavour, an exclusive prerogative of its vivacious bubbles and its innate freshness.
Made of 50% Chardonnay grapes, 25% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, matured in caves for 3 years, this is a champagne that sums all the inebriating perfumes of the grapes used.

Fine and delicate, it reveals scents of violets and aromas of woodland fruits. Well structured, with just the right balance between acidulous and sweet, the wine is full-bodied and vinous to the palate, and leaves a final sensation that is rounded, balanced and fine.
