    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 30-year-old vines planted in sandstone, clay and chalk in Merfy and is made 60% from the 2013 vintage, 40% from 2012. Disgorged in Oct 2016 with a 5.5g/l dosage. For drinking now to 2019.

    One of two single vineyard champagnes from Alexandre that he produces in very limited quantities, the pinot noir vines here were planted in 1987, in a parcel where there is 60cm of tufa over limestone. This is the third vintage released, aged in 3-6yo barrels with 22g/l for the secondary fermentation. While it shows an intensity and energy typical of 2013, it remains graceful and subtly poised, driven by its tense, pungent minerality. Its elegantly fragrant notes of red cherry, nectarine and pear persist with excellent length on the finish, anchored by a pronounced salinity.  2g/l dosage. VLQ. Available September. For drinking now to 2022.

    From a tiny parcel of ungrafted meunier vines planted in 1952 that were never touched by phylloxera, this was fermented entirely in 3-6yo oak barrels. It’s elegantly textured and sleekly built, marked by a graceful tension and a resonant briny signature of sandy soils. It unfolds on the palate with subtle layers of flavour, persisting with refined harmony and excellent length. 2 g/l dosage. VLQ. Available September. For drinking now to 2022.

    A delicate salmon pink, this champagne comes from the 2014 vintage and was aged in a mix of stainless steel and barrels. 15% pinot noir still wine from Orizeaux was assembled to give the colour and it was disgorged in Jan 2018. It is a very elegant rosé, with nuanced, layered red cherry and redcurrant fruit, underlined by subtle notes from the soil. The dosage of 6g/l suits perfectly.
