Made from Grand Cru vineyards in Mesnil-sur-Oger on the Côte des Blancs, this beautiful wine is maturing well. The ripe, creamy pineapple and spice character has softened the natural minerality of the texture. Full in the mouth, ripe and rounded, the wine will age more, so drink now, or better, keep until 2017.
