The current release of his Brut Exception is from the base year of 2010 and is comprised entirely of Pinot Blanc. The vins clairs are raised in stainless steel and went through full malolactic fermentation. The bouquet is complex and beautifully expressive, wafting from the glass in a mix of peach, pear, brioche, musky floral tones and a fine base of chalky soil tones. On the palate the wine is fullish, focused and light on its feet, with a good core, frothy mousse, and good balance and grip on the vibrant finish. This is a lovely aperitif weight bubbly, with a quite unique profile from its pinot blanc origins. Good juice. 2016-2025+."

The nose is marked, pleasant and of good intensity with flowers, citrus fruits (lemon zest) and spices (white pepper). The nose has a nice character. Its youth shows radiance and a welcomed sensation of freshness. The balance is elegant and slightly strong, which gives the wine character.
