The last disg. Of 2008 is 06/2016, and this already gorgeous wine has actually improved in the last year. We hope—we really hope to have it through the summer, but seriously, DO NOT DELAY scoring what is not only a great young masterpiece but also a killer value. This is establishing a track record as one of Champagnes great wines, offering character, yumminess and value.

Press & Reviews
The 2007 Brut Volupté is a bit more oxidative in style than the Empreinte. The blend is different of course, but the aromas and flavors have a warm, inner glow that is quite welcoming. Hints of caramel and white flower wrap around the finish. The 2007 Volupté is 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier done in a combination of large oak and tank. This bottle was disgorged in June 2013.
