Tasting notes
Color Golden yellow. Bouquet The wine shows lovely aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, spice and yeast. Palate This elegant, complex, crisp and balanced wine features fine, persistent mouthfeel as well as lingering flavors of fresh apples and lemons

Rating
90 Points - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "On the dry side, offering graphite and mineral aromas, grapefruit, honey and freshly baked bread flavors. Though light in weight, this shows fine intensity and a toasty, honey-accented finish. Drink now through 2011."


Wine maker notes
The Grand Brut is delicate, elegant and balanced. The striking freshness and vivacity of the floral and fruity fragrances (yellow fruits and fresh fruits) take root, before giving way to subtle notes of vanilla and butter, lending the wine a fruity and consistent character. The notes of cherry plum, lemon and bergamot orange emerge first, then make way for the flowers of fruit trees, such as lime and honeysuckle. These are followed by notes of butter, madeleine cakes and vanilla sugar. Lingering notes of grapefruit, white peaches, green pears, apple trees and green hazelnuts round off the taste.

Ampleness and vivacity balance out in the mouth, developing into a flavour of round and vinous elegance. A fresh, balanced champagne with a long finish.


Food pairing
Pairs well with game hen or duck, also pomme frittes with subtle horseradish aioli, mushroom tarts with truffle crème sauce, salt baked king salmon and roasted turkey with chestnut stuffing.
