Wine SpectatorRichly spiced, with a skein of ground clove, ginger and cardamom winding through flavors of dried apricot and apple, currant candy, passion fruit and lemon zest. Beautiful texture and balance here, followed by a long and mouthwatering, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported.
International Wine CellarPale silver. Mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit aromas display excellent energy and focus. Brisk, mouthwatering and pure, offering stony lemon and quince flavors and a slow-building baked apple quality. Very clean, nervy and light on its feet, with excellent persistence.
VinousThe NV Brut Grand Cru Réserve is a rich, boisterous wine that showcases incredible intensity in its fruit. The fat, rich style completely covers every inch of the palate and a sweet, perfumed finish reminiscent of ethereal plums and kirsch offers final notes of elegance. The Grand Cru Réserve is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay (all Ambonnay). The base vintage is 2006, with equal parts 2004 and 2003 that round out the blend. Disgorged June 24, 2009.
Wine EnthusiastThis full-bodied offering is ripe and richly balanced. A predominance of the two Pinots gives it an intense fruitiness, with raspberry and red apple notes dominating. At the same time, there is a fine, mineral-driven tautness that gives it a final, crisp bite. Disgorged February 2012.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
