Press & Reviews
(38% pinot meunier, 37% pinot noir and 25% chardonnay, all from Cumieres and Hautvillers; aged for four years on its lees and disgorged in June, 2013): Light yellow. Lemon, quince and talc-y minerals on the nose, with notes of anise, honeysuckle and iodine adding complexity. Impressively precise and incisive, displaying bitter lemon pith and green apple flavors and excellent mineral lift. Finishes with strong, zesty persistence, the mineral and floral qualities echoing.
The NV Brut Nature Pureté jumps from the glass with dried pear, hazelnuts, wild flowers and spices. The presence of mostly red grapes and extended time on the lees gives the Pureté gorgeous breadth, richness and volume. It's hard to believe the Pureté is made with no dosage, such is the wine's breadth, creaminess and generosity. This is a gorgeous showing. Sweet floral and honeyed notes add lift on the finish. This bottle was disgorged in June 2013.
