In a lineup of incredibly rare Champagnes, the "Pierrières" bottling is the most obtainable, and the most delicious and accessible at this stage of the game. (Read: drink this while your bottles of "Les Roises" are coming around ... ) It's also the first wine Collin made in the early 2000s. The chalk in this vineyard is quite close to the topsoil and mixed with black silex, giving the wine a spicy aromatic profile, and a rich, broad, almost Jurassic finish. The nose offers notes of white pepper and ground coriander. Though none of Collin's Champagnes are exactly giving on the palate, Pierrières has a certain generosity that makes it a joy to drink, even young and tightly coiled. A superb effort! -Sophie Barrett
