Review:
Disgorged in July 2018, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Cuvée Laetitia is based on the 2013 vintage blended with a perpetual reserve that dates back to 1983. Offering up aromas of burnished orchard fruit, toasted walnuts and citrus rind, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and sapid, with ripe but racy acids and a tangy, saline finish.

Review:
Bright yellow. A wild, pungent bouquet evokes dried pear, beeswax, anise and iodine, with floral and spice notes gaining strength with air. Juicy, penetrating orchard fruit and orange marmalade flavors show impressive depth and power and are given spine by tangy minerality. Very rich and complex but lively Champagne with serious finishing thrust and lingering spiciness.
