Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Champagne displays very quick tiny bubbles. It opens with a mild tangerine bouquet with a hint of yeasty dough and walnut. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild green apple and pecan blend with a hint of tangerine and cantaloupe. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. The most of the panel felt this Champagne could be served on its own and others thought it would be nice with lobster with drawn butter. 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.
