After a night of tasting Krug champagnes, I definitely see similarities between this and Krug. Most notably, the predominance of pinot noir in the blend. At 15 years of age, this champagne pours a deep golden, almost auburn color with thick legs with pin-sized bubbles. The nose is dominated by fresh brioche, candied lemon peel, minerals, butter, smoke, granny smith apples and honey biscuits. With time, I even pick up some pepper and prunes. On the palate, the wine is unctuous and flaunts a creamy, delicate mousse. Minerality is definitely present, front and square. yet despite that, this wine is far from austere given the citrus, smoked fish, aloe, truffles and dried mangoes found in abundance on the palate. The finish is long as the champagne alternates between smokiness and tartness. The end is clear cut with a dry yet supple finish. The power and concentration are there, but the champagne lacks the longevity in the glass when compared to its peers. 93
