Product Description

Brut Réserve. A multi-vintage worthy of a prestige cuvée.

COMPLEX: a particular blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
PRECISE: a judicious selection of approximately 60 crus. 
UNCTUOUS: 40% of reserve wines,  many of them more than 10 years old.
DEEP: a maturation of more than 3 years in Gallo-Roman chalk cellars.

A golden champagne, with persistent effervescence. A nose that is both complex and delicious.

  *Top 100 Wines of 2012* It’s rare to find a nonvintage blend with such attractive bottle age; in most the fruitiness dominates. This has a toasty character, with an almond note and a ripe mouthfeel that balances its warm pear and yellow-fruit flavors. This demonstrates a full, rich style.   (12/ 2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

  Firm and toasty, with hints of vanilla and shredded coconut accenting flavors of creamed apple, toasted hazelnut, lemon meringue pie and black cherry puree. Refined in texture and mouthwatering through to the smoky, mineral-tinged finish. Disgorged 2012. Drink now through 2023.   (10/ 2013)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

  (roughly one-third each pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay; laid down in 2008 and disgorged in 2012; L122974 3685): Light gold. Pungent pear and yellow plum aromas, with smoky mineral and citrus zest nuances adding energy. Gently sweet citrus marmalade and pear nectar flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity, picking up a toasty, leesy quality with aeration. Juicy orange and pear flavors linger on the long, vibrant, toasty finish.   (12/ 2013)

90 points Wine & Spirits

  The reserve wines in this blend show in its richness and deep bass notes. It’s a complex Champagne that holds its mature flavors with cleanness and clarity, making it as refreshing as spring water. Scents of green apples and toasty lees add to the firm juiciness. For roast scallops.   (12/ 2013)

Jancis Robinson

  Based on 2007 vintage and the first new formulation, launched in 2012. 60% of 2007, a third of each variety. 60 crus. Far fewer crus than in the past - the principle difference from the old days. Reserve wines are half Chardonnay and half Pinot Noir, 8-10 years old. Kept in big containers. Minimum 36 months in crayères. 11 g/l dosage for all cuvées. Complex nose and very well balanced palate. Seems definitely ready. 17.5/20 points.   (6/ 2014)
