The Brut Reserve is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. Its blend is made with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region.
The Brut Reserve presents with mature aromas exhibiting floral freshness for this cuvée as well as fragranced of fresh fruit and ripe pears. On the palate, the wine exhibits full and accurate flavor combined with a fine freshness and a rich bouquet which bear witness to the ageing of this cuvée in the House’s traditional cellars.

"The tiny mousse tells a lot about the quality of this impressive Champagne. It is quite full in style, with flavors of white currants and a rich, but still bone-dry aftertaste. It is a perfect food Champagne, with structure and a good tension between richness and elegance."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90
"Pale gold. Fresh peach, pear and nectarine on the nose, with a complicating note of white flowers. Fleshy, plush and ripe, with strong peach and ripe pear flavors in a more powerful and less restrained style than last year's release. Firms up on the finish, picking up a mineral note and showing very good balance and length."
Wine Spectator (WS): 91
"More bass than treble. Full-bodied and voluminous, this delivers subtle, complex shadings of whole-grain bread, coconut and candied fruit, finishing with a distinctive rhubarb preserve aftertaste. It's rich and balanced on the soft side."
