Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored Champagne opens with a mild light lemon bouquet. On the palate, this light bodied offering is zesty and lively. The flavor profile is citrus focused with ripe lemon being the most dominant flavor. There were also some nutty notes detected as well as key limes. The finish is dry and very refreshing. The panel felt this sparkler would pair nicely with mussels in garlic broth or baked brie. 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
