■ Grape variety
Pinot Noir 33%, Chardonnay 33%, Pinot Meunier 33%. Brut Reserve is traditionally blended from 30 different varieties of Cru, Cepage and Vintage wine. Pinot Noir gives structure and depth, the Pinot Meunier contributes a rich fruity taste and the Chardonnay lends subtlety and finesse.
※The cepage differs slightly according to the vintage.
■ Wine-making and Maturing
Essentially only cuvee is used. Once the must has been clarified, the wine is fermented in strictly temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, thereby preserving the aroma and fruity characteristics. The wine is then aged in the deepest, low temperature underground cellar in Epernay for a minimum of three years. Remuage is carried out manually by a specialist craftsman and then it is left to settle until adjustment is complete before shipping. No dosage is carried out, hence the name "Pure".
■ Tasting Notes:
The golden color, dense and brilliant, is shot through with thousands of bubbles. The fresh and lively nose expresses a fine, complex register of cloves and roses, developing into hints of breadcrumbs, yeast and citrus fruit. In the mouth, the attack is fine and straight as an arrow - surprising after the mature, concentrated nose. A sumptuous, fine and well structured wine. The aromas of honey and cloves come through with subtlety, giving the wine extra depth and contributing to its good length.
