Champagne House is judged on the quality of its Brut NV. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides structure, typically of a Clicquot, Pinot Meunier adds roundness & Chardonnay adds elegance. Light golden color, complex aromas of stone & citrus fruit & creamy biscuit. Tiny bubbles, light mousse, apple & orange citrus flavors with raspberry notes, good balance. The finish has notes of toasty nutty yeast, clean on the medium+ ending. Ok for a mass produced bubbly!

No complaints here...archetypal for a reason.

This was in my cellar for already quite some time (6+Year) but still fresh apples a bit of toast and yeast. Slightly matured tones. But a great glass for a celebration.

Great classic. Soft spume and a billion of tiny dancing bubbles. Classic champ yellow color. Intense and satisfying parfume of yeasts, yellow fruits and some warm hints like hazelnut, honey. In the mouth it's not too dry and with an evident dosàge but it's incredibly solid and it leads to a pleasant and intense citrine dimension and a long persistance. Flavours are so solid that it's not easy to drink and enjoy something else after this. The widow wants to be the first lady, as usual. Have a great 2016!

Seriously what is all the fuss? Nothing from this screams Champagne. If anything this is a really good $20 Prosecco at best. Just because they have marketing dollars behind it doesn’t constitute this to be escalated to rock star status. Let the sheeple drink this for their selfie pics, social media hashtag likes and I’ll gladly fork over the $50 this POS costs to buy a bottle of growers.
