An excellently made champagne, with a weight and cream that's frankly a little surprising given the complete lack of dosage. A solid background creme brulee note lets the minerality and herbal tones shine without coming off as too linear. Really, really solid.

This offering from Maillart is 100% barrel fermented and there’s no dosage (but you wouldn’t know that from the creamy richness in this Champagne). The nose presents fresh Granny Smith apples, stewed pears, baking spice, and light floral notes. The palate has a beautiful fruit-and-floral balance. This slips into a very creamy character with savory spices into a long satisfying finish.

Coming from a single plot and single press load, this is a very small production Champagne with a not so small flavor profile. 100% barrel fermented and made of 100% Chardonnay from vines planted in 1963. I was shocked to find out the dosage here was 0 g/L as I assumed much higher from its richer, sweeter-fruited texture. Most full-Chardonnay, zero dosage Champagnes would be quite zippy at this stage, but in warm vintages such as 2012, the wines shine full of flavor and concentration. This is an example of very good winemaking.
