This is a wonderful aperitif style, with an expressive nose of cream and white floral notes. Supple, fresh and ethereal, the base wine is 2012 with 25% reserve wines from a perpetual blend implemented by Jacques Vazart back in 1982, adding an extra dimension of complexity to the mix.
The embodiment of the great Jean-Pierre Vazart himself, his lead cuvée is impeccably crafted and uncomplicated, a quintessential apéritif champagne that declares the signature of Chouilly and the precision of blanc de blancs. His ripe fruit mandate sings in white peach, fig, even a dash of the exoticism of apricots, finding harmonious tension with bright acidity and the classic, finessing structure of fine Chouilly chalk minerality. To express such commanding chalk mineral precision in his entry blend is a true triumph, lingering very long, salty and precise. 93pts Tyson Stelzer 'Champagne Guide 202-2021'
