The story: Jose Michel made his first vintage in 1955 following 5 generations of Champagne makers. Many say that he and Krug are the masters of taming the difficult Pinot Meunier grape which features prominently in both their wines.
In your mouth: I am elegant and complex on the nose with aromas of toasted almonds, hazelnut, and flowers. Once I hit your palate I will shock you with my finesse. Brioche, stewed bananas, and more flowers. Rich and mouth coating. Need I say more?
