A magnificent, elegantly structured Champagne that exudes flavors of peach, crisp apple and toast. A finely balanced, fresh Champagne that spends 30 months on lees. This 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay blend (from 30+ year old vines) drinks like a vintage wine. Honeysuckle blossoms tickle the aromatic nose. Toasty, lovely notes of warm, crusty oatmeal biscuits drizzled with molasses and sweet, red fruits characterize the bountiful, layered mouth.
91 Points Wine Spectator - Emphasizing pinot noir’s richness (80 percent of the blend) with hints of chamomile from the chardonnay (20 percent), this has brisk notes of strawberries and tart pink grapefruit. It’s chalky and tense, with touches of sweetness to contrast and broaden the tight feel of the bubbles.
91 Points Wine Advocate - The bright golden NV Cuvée Réservée Brut Grand Cru is based on Pinot Noir (80%) and Chardonnay (20%), and opens with a clear, intense, and characterful bouquet of white fruits and delicate herbal as well as spicy aromas. Medium-bodied and elegant on the palate, this is an intense, fresh, well structured, and terroir-driven wine of good complexity and expression. The lingering salinity is absolutely stimulating and the length is remarkable. An impressive aperitif!
