88% pinot noir, 12% chardonnay, 6g/l dosage

Eurocentric: From the brilliant 2004 vintage. Full of character, with subtle red fruits reflecting Cumiere’s strength in elegant pinot noir. Recommended as a food wine, as proven by its selection as the current house champagne for French Laundry and Per Se.

Peter Liem: The majority of this was fermented and aged in large oak foudres, and while this is still a young wine, it’s showing exceptionally well. Fragrant aromas of black cherry and black plums feel concentrated and high in density, as if etching an indelible presence on the palate, and the taut structure sets off the flavours and allows them to shine. It’s complete and vividly expressive, setting the rich, ripe fruit in a vibrant frame and finishing with a nearly electric tension.

Wine Spectator: A rich, sumptuous Champagne, with vanilla, honey, grapefruit and tropical fruit notes. Balanced on the soft side, yet fresh, with a touch of tannin on the finish for structure. Fine length.
