Varietal: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
WS 88 IWC 89
This brand, with their famous "yellow label" (for the non-vintage brut), is known for full-bodied, toasty, deep, Pinot-based wines, often with a moderate dosage (reportedly higher for the American market) that accentuates the impression of size.
"Like a sweeter version of a good blanc de blancs, with graphite, honey and lemon notes that mix with the richness and lively acidity. Moderate length. Drink now. –BS" -Rated 88, Wine Spectator
"Pale silvery-green color. Very strong, persistent mousse. Complex aromas of peach, mango, sweet butter, minerals and toast. Just off-dry and quite fresh, with lively fruit salad, earth and toast flavors. Not at all heavyhanded for a somewhat sweet Champagne. Finishes brisk and fairly dry. Just lacks the nuance for 90 points, but this is a superb example of demi-sec." -Rated 89, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
