Champagne Barnaut Grand Cru Reserve NV, Bouzy


Almost full bodied Champ. Artisan like. Excellent location: Grand Cru vineyars from Reims, south facing, 120M above ground, 36 months sur lee, last year's wines as reserve. And this Grand Cru, despite the richness, is only with sugar 6g/L. It's going to be freshly bodied and with all lthe goodies of traditional school-fine bubbles, minerality and richness. 75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay.

BH says, 'This is elegant and layered with distinct yeast, white peach, pear and subtle brioche notes that continue onto the robust, intense and powerful flavors that pack serious flavor authority and almost painful finishing inten-sity. This is clearly intended for those who love full-flavored Champagne with no holds barred. To be sure, don’t search for elegance in this package but I actually quite like the “take no prisoners” style. BH92.
