Really, this Champagne is so rare about the only information we have is from Couvreur himself. It’s…
• A combination of his top wines from 2009 and 2010;
• Aged partially in oak (a la Tarlant, Bollinger and Krug);
• Given 10 years on the lees;
• Bottled at an “extra-brut” dosage of 4 g/l; and
• Highly, highly allocated.
The result is a Champagne of profound flavor and depth, wonderfully mature, which easily challenges just about any at $150 or more (even much more).
