International Wine CellarBright yellow with a strong bead. Sexy, strongly perfumed bouquet displays melon, white peach and strawberry, along with a sexy floral overtone. Sweet pear, strawberry and raspberry flavors are refreshingly juicy, with slow-building spices adding interest. Tightened up with air, but finishes with excellent clarity and a silky texture.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Brut Grand Cru Tradition is a pretty, immediate Champagne with lovely roundness. Nothing in particular stands out, just the wine's balance and overall sense of proportion. A soft, caressing finish rounds things out in style. This release is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from the 2008 vintage, with the addition of reserve wines. Disgorged January 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
