"The youthful and mature elements, plus the citrusy freshness and creaminess from lees contact are beautifully interwoven to create an elegant and properly dry whole. Complex candied-citrus, fresh-nut and chalky flavors at the long, complete finish. A cuvee based on wines from the Grand Cu villages of Cramant (43%), Chouilly (25%) and Oger (2%) with 30% from the 1er Cru village of Cuis. Drink now."

"The 2016 Brut Cuvée Gastronome is a blend of Chardonnay mostly from Cramant, Chouilly and Cuis. It offers a compelling mix of dried herbs, lemon confit, marzipan, dried flowers and earthy tones. Rich and creamy, with tons of persistence, the 2016 has so much to offer. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: May 10, 2021."
