This will continue Laurent's streak of making the best wine in Champagne from "difficult" vintages, and indeed this is as good as the GREAT 2001-and maybe better. It brings a nettle-y green sting to the magnificent grace and concentration of this ever-improving wine. The length is replete with pepper, leather and verbena; the salt and stocky savor are mindbending-dried porcini, rare duck breast, clove and satsumas, all into a seemingly endless finish you want scoop back out of your mouth and drink again.

Wine SpectatorThis expressive version offers a rich tapestry of baked currant, ground anise, clove, kumquat, fruitcake and toasted coconut flavors, framed by fine, crystalline acidity. Shows lovely definition and harmony, with a long, creamy finish. Disgorged April 2014. Drink now through 2029. 150 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Coeur de Cuvée Premier Cru Brut was disgorged in May 2014 and offers a deep, ripe and rich bouquet with hazelnut, and some ginger and floral flavors. Rich and creamy on the palate, this is a round, very elegant and firmly structured Champagne; it has good grip and fruit intensity in the finish. Although, it is a bit austere in its youth right now.

Stephan Reinhardt, June 2016
