The Cuvée de Réserve comes from plots classified as 1er Cru and has more Chardonnay than the Brut, which brings some acidity and freshness. Aromas of pastry and brioche are combined with notes of ripe white fruits and citrus. On the palate, fine bubbles, followed by a nice dry and creamy finish. Interesting to see the level of complexity of a Brut Champagne that has spent 5 years in the bottle before being released. It has the character of a great Champagne but without the price tag; and it has just been awarded a Bronze Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards!
