Wine Enthusiast: "This is the main non-vintage wine from this southern Champagne Aube-based producer. It’s a cuvée based around the producer’s specialty of Pinot Noir. With fresh acidity over rich white fruits, apples and pears, it is balanced, fragrant and ready to drink." (9/2015) Wine Spectator: "A modest version, with a smoky undertow and a tangy palate of kumquat, melon and lemon curd. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,980 cases made. (Web Only - 2015)" K&L Notes: This all Pinot Noir Champagne is a blend of many small plots on the Josselin estate in Gye-Sur-Seine. It is aged for thr... Read More »
This Champagne is 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier from 25-30 year old vineyards on the Ariston estate in Brouillet.
This estate has been in Michel Loriot's family for 12 generations, since 1675.

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a Pinot Noir-dominated wine, with intense acidity as well as attractive, rich white fruits. There is a touch of maturity, of ripeness that gives the wine a full-bodied character. Add in some toastiness and this is a well-integrated wine that’s ready to drink. -RV" (9/2015)
Also a 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this is aged for five years and treated with a low dosage to preserve its crisp character. Producer's tasting note: "Intense, rich with great length and breadth. Attractive on the eye, wonderfully fresh on the palate and highly perfumed. Aromas of pear melt into a lovely, round, gingerbread sensation on the tongue. Good structure, tightly integrated and an excellent match with fish."
