The range begins with the Brut Réserve, composed of roughly equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, along with about 30 percent reserve wine from the previous three vintages. It typically shows full, fruity notes of citrus, apple and quince, and as with all of the estate's wines, malolactic fermentation is avoided. A light, supple and accessible wine, best served at a temperature comprised between 8 and 10°C. You will enjoy its creamy and dense texture, typical of its full maturity. The Brut Réserve is our signature piece and has to be recognizable in any circumstances. We chose a balanced dosage of 9 grams/liter in order to keep a ripe and bitter finish that matches the Champagne Terroir".

Firm and sleek, with crisp acidity structuring flavors of Gala apple, raisin bread, quince paste and almond cream. Well-knit, with a fine bead and fresh finish. Disgorged September 2011. Drink now through 2017. 65,000 cases made.

The NV Brut Reserve is a very pretty, silky wine graced with dried apricots, dried peaches, flowers, and spices. Soft and enveloping through to the finish, the Brut Reserve impresses for its overall balance and finesse. The aromas and flavors are just a touch forward, suggesting the wine is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. The Brut Reserve is roughly equal parts Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, based on the 2009 vintage (with the addition of 30% reserve wines) aged half in oak and half in steel. Dosage was 8 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.
