    This is amongst my Top picks in vintage Champagne
    Boizel is a smaller Champagne house hence not seen in the same light as Bollinger and Billecart

    However it too has a high Pinot Noir content and oak treatment, this would explain the forest flour and strawberry hints on the nose.
    This wine is complex for Champagne and it finishes creamy dry and long
    With a hint of nuts at the very end.

    This wine is well worth tracking down
