"Lemon and caramel. A broad plane of yellow-white fruit, crisp, disciplined, transparent. Touch of toasted hemp heart and flax, but it's the piercing citric acidity that shapes this wine into an arrow on the end. (TC)"

"The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs A Mi-Chemin is a blend of primarily 2020 and 2019 juice with a bit of 2018 - half from Oger and half from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. It shows good energy and plenty of cut. I find the wood a bit prominent in this edition, but that is a relatively minor critique. The low dosage of just 2.2 grams per liter brings out the more stark side of Chardonnay. There is a feeling of delicacy and transparency here that I find quite intriguing. Disgorged: March, 2023."

"An appealing, harmonious Champagne, with pretty apple blossom and graphite aromas accenting flavors of ripe white cherry and grainy yellow pear, almond skin and biscuit, preserved lemon and fleur se sel. Lightly mouthwatering, with a fine, lively bead. Disgorged March 2023. Drink now through 2026. 120 cases imported."
