There is something magical about Champagne and magnums; always tasting so much better and providing double the pleasure! The Grand Bouquet releases always receive extended ageing and this was disgorged in 2012. Quite rich and powerful, yet perfectly poised and balanced. Jean-Pierre Vazart is a very focused and forward thinking winemaker whose skills and expertise are apparent with every release.
"A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2006 Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Grand Bouquet hits the palate with a blast of rich varietal Chardonnay fruit. The 2006 stands out for its imposing structure and fabulous overall balance. At the same time, it is a decidedly powerful Champagne best suited for the dinner table, as its massive structure desperately needs food. Hints of floral infused honey and crushed rocks frame the vivid, kaleidoscopic finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020." - 92+ Points Wine Advocate
