This vintage champagne has a generous and persistent mousse, and a bright gold colour.It has a complex nose, fusing woody hints with notes of stone fruits and lime. In the mouth, the finish is long and lasting, lively and generous.
Wine Spectator"Ripe quince, honey, lemon zest and brioche notes are layered with a chalky undertow in this well-structured Champagne. Vibrant, with juicy acidity. The creamy bead carries spice, salted almond and ripe fruit flavors on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 150 cases imported." - AN, Aug 2016
Wine Enthusiast"This rich, opulent prestige cuvée lives up to the Séduction name, instantly appealing with its ripe yellow fruit and generous texture. It is just approaching maturity, with hints of toast. Drink now or, even better, from 2017." - Roger Voss
