Stock is very limited we were told, and as such Cyril could only share a small sample of the range. However, the vintages we did taste all showed incredibly well – perfect examples of how vintage champagne can develop new levels of complexity under ideal storage conditions. Most surprising was the Brut Millésime 1983: “the most underrated vintage of the 80s” according to Cyril, a phenomenon he attributes to the preceding year. Explaining that 1982 was the year in which America really discovered Champagne, Cyril believes the success of this exhibition vintage largely over-shadowed the “clean, pure and subtle” champagnes that followed in 1983.
After our tasting, we were told we’d have to wait a few months before the grand release. Alas, that time has come and we are pleased to reveal the following five incredible cuvées have been released and are available to purchase:
