An assertive crusty/buttery puff-pastry fragrance like the ends of a croissant you dunked in a melted aloe vera sorbet; high notes of chalk and licorice; full of white tea and fennel-seed in a generous wash of flavor. About a third each of Mesnil/Avize/Cramant. The assembly of top Cuvee of only 4 single vineyard sites of Côtes de Blancs (Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant, Oger), this Cuvee is made of the best vintages.

The 2006 Brut Millésime Cuvée L'Esprit de 2006 is a blend of fruit from parcels in Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Cramant, all four Grand Cru villages. It is a sensational wine laced with green pears, apples, lemon, white flowers and spices. The balance of ripeness and tautness is remarkable in this powerful, intense wine. I tasted the 2006 for the first time during a visit to the winery about a year and a half ago, and immediately purchased a case of magnums. The wine is every bit as remarkable today. Dosage is 5.3 grams per liter. Disgorged January 2011.
