Alfred Gratien Champagne Brut Cuvee Classique

Alfred Gratien Champagne Brut Cuvee Classique 750ml           
Sku: 1651894*

Tasting notes
Colour: Light-gold, very beautiful

Sparkle: Fine, extremely long-lasting mousse

Bouquet: Citrus fruits, mangos, peaches and apricots

Palate: A wonderful balance of aromatic strength and the freshness of exotic fruits

Overall impression: A refined blend in which the elegance of the Chardonnay melds with the fruitiness of the Pinot Meunier and the enduring flavour of the Pinot Noir. That is the art of champagne production

 Wine Spectator 92 points (Aug 5 2015)
A chalky Champagne, mouthwatering and fruit-forward, offering crushed blackberry and black cherry fruit alongside toasted almond, candied ginger, lemon meringue and verbena notes. Drink now through 2020.-A.N.
 Vinous 90 points (Oct 2012)
The NV Brut Cuvee Classique offers up warm, resonant notes of dried pears, hazelnuts and spices. This is a lovely entry-level Champagne with plenty of breadth and volume, much it from the vinification in oak. Sweet spices notes wrap around the textured finish. The blend is 46% Chardonnay, 29% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, Disgorgement date: February 20, 2012. -- Antonio Galloni
 Wine Spectator 90 points
Plenty of graphite and mineral aromas. Shifts gears to peach, lemon and vanilla notes. Rich and mouthfilling, with a firm structure and power. Good, lingering finish. Drink now. 12,500 cases made. Score: 90. óBruce Sanderson, 2005.

Wine maker notes
This great classic clearly shows the style of Alfred Gratien. It's a refined blend dominated by fruity Pinot Meunier combined with the elegance of Chardonnay.
