This vintage wine from Lahaye is truly singing right now. The wine hails from parcels of old vines in Bouzy, including some Chardonnay (30%) planted on chalk, and there's a chalkiness to the wine's finish that adds to its overall complexity. The nose shows the Pinot Noir in the blend (70%), offering vinosity and a touch of oxidation; the midpalate is powerful, sappy, and resonant with acid and mineral. Dosed at between 3 and 4 grams, the wine feels very well-balanced; one doesn't want for a gram more or a gram less of sugar. I'd encourage all Champagne lovers to try a bottle of this outstanding wine today. -msb
