Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100% control of production. Brut Réserve NV is the producer’s flagship entry-level release and represents one of the most consistently delicious non-vintage cuvee’s on the market. A light, fine and harmonious champagne, it is made with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region. Straw yellow in colour with an abounding mousse, the nose is soft and broad with fresh apple and pear notes together with fresh floral overtones and subtle suggestions of hazelnuts. Flavoursome and impeccably balanced in the mouth, citrus and orchard notes are integrated with suggestions of bread and honey. Crunchy and long on the finish, this special magnum release is the ideal partner for every occasion. It is perfect as an aperitif and can be enjoyed with a wide variety of dishes.
