Wine Review: This Champagne performs very well with the panel every year. It tied for our top score again this year. It opens with a musty yeast and mild green apple bouquet. On the palate, this sparkler is medium bodied, balanced, and elegant. The flavor profile is a mint green tea with notes of minerality, green apple, and bread dough. The finish is dry and refreshing. The panel suggested pairing this very nice Champagne with chicken piccatta. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: From the outset, Brut Premier affirms its personality and seduction: the texture is full and generous and, in a fairly unexpected way, integrates characteristics of maturity associated with fruitier and more refreshing notes. The wine has a fresh festive finesse…"In the mouth, the wine has structure, richness and length. It is a full, complex wine that is both modern and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic." Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon
