2016 Le Dessus du Bois Marie

96 Points

The 2016 Brut Nature Le Dessus Du Bois Marie (Magnum) is a wine of cut and precision. Lemon confit, spice, baked apple tart and pear notes abound. Here the expression is all about energy, tension and delineation. Tangerine oil, spice, crushed rocks and white flowers add the closing shades of complexity. –Antonio Galloni, Vinous

 

2015 Le Dessus du Bois Marie

97 Points

...showing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with a deep and inviting bouquet of red apple, clear honey, linden, beeswax and lily pollen...this is a beautifully balanced wine that's showing superbly... –William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

94 Points

The 2015 Brut Nature Le Dessus Du Bois Marie (Magnum) shows the natural breadth and textural resonance of Meunier off to great effect. Apricot, chamomile, dried flowers, hazelnut and lightly honeyed notes all open up in a creamy, ample Champagne built on textural resonance. Rich and exotic, with tremendous depth and personality, the Dessus Du Bois Marie has so much to offer. It is another gorgeous, deeply expressive Champagne from Christophe Baron. –Antonio Galloni, Vinous
