    This is a lovely, delicate style of champagne (22g/l instead of the more typical 24g/l for the secondary fermentation), showing very pure citrus fruits with good energy, a hint of quince, brioche and a saline, mineral flavour. It comes from 35-year-old vines and is made 60% from the 2013 vintage, and 40% from 2012. Disgorged in Dec 2015 with a 5.5g/l dosage.

    In 2010 the pinot meunier yields were so small that Alexandre decided to blend his two single vineyard cuvées of Les Barres and Les Alliées together. Aged in three to nine year old barrels (with cement eggs too) with a 4g/l dosage, it has good depth of almost plummy fruit, hint of hay, and its ripe fruit flavours are almost chewy in their density and grip. Very limited quantity. For drinking now to 2018.

    A delicate salmon pink, this champagne comes from the 2011 vintage. 15% pinot noir still wine from Orizeaux was assembled to give the colour. It is a very elegant rosé, with nuanced, layered red cherry and redcurrant fruit, underlined by subtle notes from the soil. The dosage of 5g/l suits perfectly.

    This comes from 37 year old vines on a south-east facing hillside in Villers-aux-Noeuds. It is made from a base of 2012. Aged in new to 12 year old barrels for 11 months, it was then given two and a half years sur lattes before disgorging with a dosage of 4g/l. The malolactic fermentations have been completed. It feels vivid and vibrant in its energy, and is intensely expressive of its terroir, not only in its briny, oyster-shell minerality but also in its rich body. Limited quantity. For drinking now to 2020.

    The initial still wine from the 2013 vintage was oak aged in new to thirteen year old barrels for ten months, before being bottled and then disgorged 17 months later in December 2015, at which point 2g/l dosage was added. Rich, vinous, dense, complex and extremely long on the palate but all the time beautifully fresh and balanced. Top rated single vineyard champagne, World of Fine Wine. For drinking now to 2019.

    Jérôme has made this extremely delicately coloured, fine rosé by the addition of one barrel of pinot meunier red wine aged for 11 months and then gently fused and married with the white wine – the idea of doing a saignée by leaving the juice in contact with the skins for 24 hours just for the sake of colour was anathema to him. It’s an extremely fine example with layers of delicately perfumed spiced red fruits and an incredible textural finesse. Disgorged with a 2g/l dosage. For drinking now to 2018.
