Rosé de Saignée
Note : 90+/100
Réserve Grand Cru
complex aperitif and a first class Champagne to be served with food. This has good aging potential.
Note : 92/100
Note : 88+/100
very mineral Champagne that is pretty complex but still—that short after the disgorgement—challengingly tight and should be kept for a couple of months and up to five or more years. Enjoy as an apéritif !
Note : 94/100
Abyss Extra Brut
aging, 500 sealed bottles were stored at a depth of 60 meters and at a constant temperature of 13 degrees Celsius in the Atlantic Ocean for 12 months. The resulting Abyss opens super clear, pure and fresh on the nose but also deep and highly complex, with salty oyster and algae flavors and ripe white fruit aromas. Very intense and complex on the palate, this is a rich and concentrated Chardonnay with a pure, salty, tightly structured and very
complex finish with great tension. Tasted in Aix-en-Provence and again in Marseille in November 2016. Hostomme recommends to carafe the Abyss.
