On the nose of this particular bottle I get beautiful bread pudding, creme brulee, nutmeg, and lemon curd aromas. It's beautifully aromatic, with all the yeast and fresh bread notes you would expect from a Grande Cuvée.
On the palate the wine is jam packed with bread pudding, creme brulee, lemon-lime, bread dough, caramel, crushed stone, dry apricot, and honey suckle. The wine is of course brut dry, however there is a fruitiness and also some really nice caramel/creme that really makes this wine delicious and desirable. The finish sails on and on and there is a creaminess and tart key lime pie note that lingers on the palate for quite some time. Brilliant as always.....95 points
