94pts Wine Advocate– 2006 vintage

The 2006 Cuvée Théophile Grand Cru Extra Brut blends 60% Chardonnay (from Les Champs d’Alouette in Mesnil-sur-Oger) and 40% Pinot Noir (Ls Grande Rouelle in Ambonnay). Vinified in used barriques, this wine offers an intense and vinous bouquet of ripe fruits and pure chalk.

Full-bodied and intense on the palate, this is a very elegant and expressive Champagne with a firm structure and a long, complex finish. It’s lean and rich at the same time, and probably needs a bit of time. It was disgorged in July 2015 with two grams of dosage per liter.

94pts Wine Spectator– 2006 vintage

A lovely note of ripe black currant meets rich hints of toasted brioche, candied ginger and salted almond in this elegant Champagne, with a fine, silky mousse. This is well-knit and lightly mouthwatering, and at 14 years of age, still vibrant and focused through to the mouthwatering, spiced finish.

Drink now through 2030. 200 cases made, 34 cases imported. — AN
