This really shows the heart of their house style at its best, to my taste, without having to climb all the way to the top of the totem pole……To my taste, a sweetspot in the range. The 2012 is a bit richer, the 2013 is a bit more chiseled/high toned. It would be a toss up among tasters who prefers what……No matter what you prefer, this is clearly class in a glass……

“Disgorged this spring, the 2015 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Terre de Vertus offers up generous aromas of stone and orchard fruit mingled with hints of buttery pastry and blanched almonds, reflecting the ripe, sunny profile of the vintage. Full-bodied, rich and vinous, it’s a muscular, fleshy rendition of this cuvée that will need a bit of time to settle down after its recent disgorgement. Right now, it can’t quite match its less weighty and more chiseled 2014 and 2013 predecessors.” 93 William Kelley
