Cuvee des Crayeres offers a fantastic introduction to Eric Rodez’s artisanal grower Champagne.  It's a 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir - for body and structure - and Chardonnay - for elegance and finesse, all from his biodynamically farmed Grand Cru vineyards. The current release - disgorged in September, 2013 - is based on 2008 (about 45%) with additions from 2005, 2006 and 2007.  About 25% of the cuvee was aged in oak and malolactic fermentation was blocked throughout. An amazing wine for the money.

"Light yellow-gold. Fresh orange, pear, white flowers and buttered toast on the intensely perfumed nose. Offers palate-staining blood orange and fresh fig flavors, along with hints of cherry pit and white pepper. Concentrated yet lithe wine with excellent finishing clarity and thrust."International Wine Cellar 92 points
