This is about as engaging as English Blanc de Blancs get; ripe fruit – apricots, sweet yellow apples, fuzzy quinces, even mango and candied grapefruit/lime creeping in – lifted by gorgeous honeysuckle floral touches and a toasty, flinty kind of reductive complexity. An intense palate of creamy lemon curd on toast leads a bold mousse with some sweet almond essence creeping in. 7 g/l dosage is just perfect. Tremendous Chardonnay.
