Tasting Note: Pale gold with a fine stream of bubbles, on the nose initial aromas of pear and nuttiness give way to hints of brioche. On the palate: a linear and lively flavour of orchard fruits and hazelnuts, on the mid-palate: the texture is creamy and has an elegant freshness. The finish is long with light flavours of white flowers and toasty characteristics. Pairing with light dishes, scallops and shellfish will bring out the best of this champagne.

Jancis Robinson MW
“60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir. This is also the blend currently sold as the NV Ritz champagne. Based on 2009. Currently 7g/l.
Clean, fresh, pointed and brisk. Far from opulent. ”

“Bright fruity, clean, rather neutral nose of apple and cream. Sweet fruit and mild seductive autolysis nuances. Promising nose, however less fruity on the palate. Still, good fruit quality and purity. Light and elegant with brisk acidity and a fine lemony finish. ”

“(6 g/l dosage; LS30B16L1): Pale yellow. Orange zest, lemongrass, jasmine and chalky minerals on the perfumed nose, with a hint of white pepper adding lift. Juicy, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit flavors are fleshed out by suggestions of melon and honey, putting on weight with air while maintaining vivacity. Spicy and focused on the very long, mineral-driven finish, which leaves chalky mineral and floral notes behind.”
