Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Its light lemony robe, with nuances of gold and green reflects, is bright and shiny. The effervescence is calm and regular, composed of fine and dynamic bubbles. It expresses a complex and elegant wine, completed with wild strawberries notes, mango and exotic wood. After a little aeration, flavours of fresh apricot and bergamot are being.  In the mouth, the sharp attack is developing citrus notes, then aromas of yellow fruit are discovered. Perfectly balanced on your palate, you can sence a long lasting lemon zest.  The finish is beautifully clean, slightly mineral and long. The last impression brings you back to grapefruit and leaves the memory of a lively and dynamic wine.

"The current release of Laurent Champs’ Grand Cellier non-vintage Brut bottling is from the base year of 2018, with reserve wines included from the previous two vintages. The cépages is seventy percent chardonnay and thirty percent pinot noir. The vins clairs do not undergo malo and were aged in large foudres for ten months prior to bottling up for secondary fermentation. It was given two and a half years aging sur latte and finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter after its disgorgement in February of 2022. The wine offers up a very refined aromatic constellation of apple, pear, white lilies, bread dough, chalky minerality and the first vestiges of an eventual smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is bright, crisp and full-bodied, with fine depth at the core, excellent mineral drive, refined mousse and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish. This is already very tasty, but still pretty brisk, and a bit of bottle age will let the acids relax a bit more and the wine to really blossom. A very serious non-vintage Brut. 2022-2050."- John Gilman.
