What experts say  
  
1* "Francis Orban's great-grandfather started bottling his own cuvée back in 1929. Installed in 1999, Francis owns 7.5 hectares on the left bank of the Marne. He wants to showcase the Pinot Meunier grape, which he thinks is too little known. This Brut Reserve is a pure Meunier, with expressive nose of peach, apricot and candy. Palate is spicy, round and structured. Good intensity and length."
  
  
“Lively, smooth, fruity: this reserve Champagne shows a classic and pleasant aromatic style.”
  
  Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 "Stimulating lemon and passion fruit on the nose with honey notes underneath. Lime and citrus dominate the palate with a touch of minerality and a zesty finish."
