André Beaufort, Frankreich
The NV Brut Reserve Grand Cru shows wonderful complexity in toasty notes of brioche, apricot jam and candied orange peel, all of which come to life in a compelling display of elegance. This is an especially generous wine loaded with character, particularly at this level. There is more than enough development here to deliver a complete drinking experience at this stage, although the wine can also hold for a few additional years. This is lot 94A, Disgorged August, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.
