Vinous – 93
Candied lemon peel, dried apricot, coffee, hazelnut, honey and lightly buttered notes give the NV V.O. its distinctive rich expression of Chardonnay. The V.O. is a terrific choice for readers who enjoy slightly oxidative Champagnes without moving into the realm of wines like Substance. This release is a blend of vintages 2010, 2009 and 2008. Disgorged January 2016 and bottled with no dosage.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027
