First impressions deliver a level of aromatic complexity rarely found in a Non vintage Brut. The strength of the toasty notes from the Chardonnay recedes gradually to allow the sensation of spicy overtones of thyme and bay leaf to emerge. There are hints of white tobacco and dried flowers as well. Thanks to the presence of the reserve wines in the blend you begin to find warm praline flavours and toasted, grilled notes: gingerbread, almond, hazelnut are balanced by fruit notes of peach and ripe apricots. The freshness on the palate comes from the Chardonnay in the blend and this brings elegance to the finished wine.

About This Wine

  • PAIRING

    Perfect with canapés such as scampi tempura or scallop croquettes; or if with a meal then with sole or lightly sauteed veal sweetbreads.
  • WINEMAKER

    To create the Brut Réserve, Castelnau have put together a blend where the subtlety and complexity of the Pinots are perfectly expressed and where the character of the Chardonnay adds, as if by alchemy, balance and style. The alchemist sought to turn base metal into gold, and when you close your eyes and taste this wine you might think that our Chef de Caves has almost succeeded!
  • PRODUCTION

    The reserve wines in the blend add maturity and complexity, and this is enhanced by an extended ageing of at least 6 years which is quite exceptional in Champagne.
  • POINTS

    90 POINTS! Wine Enthusiast

    "Crisp and fruity, this mature-tasting wine has a fine toasty element in the background. Ripe and full with a creamy texture and warming aftertaste, it's ready to drink." January 2017
