Brut Majeur

“Impressive fruit presence on the nose and palate here. This delivers nectarines and peaches in abundance with bright strawberries building into the fleshy, tangy finish. Fruit-focused, refreshing style.” 92 points

Le Blanc de Blancs 2013

“A dense and flavorful blanc de blancs with lots of cooked-apple and sweet pie-crust character. Full body. Rich and almost decadent. Heavier than some, but turns fresh at the end.” 92 points

Le Blanc de Blancs 2012

“Mid gold. Richness of doughy, bready lees, with a marked marine, oyster-shell note and creamy apple aromatics. Linear and focused palate, with direct citrus and apple, nutty, bready lees and a fine mousse. Crisp acidity nicely balanced by the dosage. Fine length.” 17/20

Blanc de Blancs 2010

“Wow factor purity of chardonnay fruit on the nose here, with lemon and grapefruit as well as hints of banana and an attractive, fresh chalky edge. The palate has punchy, flavorsome and succulent citrus and green apple fruits. Extremely crisp.” 93 points

Perle d’Ayala 2006

“A chardonnay dominant cuvée (80 per cent) that has rested on lees for more than eight years. It delivers attractive, nutty complexity with an array of peach, lemon and lime aromas. The palate has attractive, pastry-like flavors with lime curd and a fleshy, smooth finish.” 93 points
