"Officially non-vintaged but based on 2009, the NV Premier Cru Brut Nature Esprit de Vrigny is a blend that represents the best soils for each grape variety: one-third Pinot Meunier from sandy soils, one-third Chardonnay from chalky soils and one-third Pinot Noir from clay soils. The wine displays a clear, super fresh and subtle/delicate bouquet with great purity, vibrancy and noblesse. Pristine and crisp on the palate, with a refined and salty finish, this is a very filigreed and complex cuvée that reflects the terroir of Vrigny, which is virtually the sea. This is mineral and firmly structured, but at the same time, it's also fine. It is terribly long and pure, with an iodine-inflected and intense yet fresh finish. This is a great, very persistent, rye and iodine-flavored wine—endless and long like a wine from the Jura. Persistently salty. Encore and encore. The is the most subtle complexity you can get in Champagne. Guys, I love it!" Stephen Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
