90% Pinoit Noir d'Ay, 10% Chardonnay d'Ay Vintage bubbles showing the electric nature of the 2008 vintage. A red-gold color is unique to this wine. Spicy licorice and star anise, with floral, subtle red berry. Dry and mercy with excellent acids. This is a wine drinkers Champagne without a doubt, especially if you like #Burgundy.

Mostly Pinot noir, this champagne was a beautiful light amber. Out of the bottle this was aromatically intense but tight, with fine and explosive (!) bubbles. Strawberries, cinnamon, lemon, crunchy red currants and pastries are tightly knit, and I was left with plenty of phenolic texture. An hour later the bubbles had subdued and this opened up to some softer fruit, but this wine will express more aroma and complexity probably 10 years out.

Perfect. Bubbly, light, not too sweet.

Yeasty, apples, lemon- quite effervescent. Balance meaty body and acid. Largely Pinot (85%) with the balance Chardonnay

Bakery aromas and apple skins fill the glass. Brioche, apples and minerals all wrapped up in a ball of acidity in the mouth. Long clean aftertaste
