Dehours, Grande Réserve Brut NV – R 480
‘Dehours' NV Grande Réserve Brut is entirely sourced from own vineyards and assembles young wines (mainly 2013s) with the complexity of the solera installed in 1998. Aged on the lees for 25 months (between May 2014 and June 2016), this non-vintaged Réserve has a bright citrus color and opens with a pure, fresh and chalky lemon bouquet with ripe and slightly oxidized apple and red currant aromas. There is nice Meunier character from the Marne Valley here. On the palate, this is a pure, fresh, elegant, well-structured and refreshing Brut with a delicate sur-lie character and fine tannins. Composed of roughly 70% Pinot Meunier along with Chardonnay and a small amount of Pinot Noir, this is an excellent aperitif to be served with oysters or raw fish. Don't serve the wine cooler than 12° Celsius (53° Fahrenheit). Tasted November 2017.’ – Wine Advocate

J.L. Vergnon, Murmure Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru NV – R 555
'Just 7,000 bottles of the Premier Cru Brut Nature are produced. Produced from 100% Chardonnay in Vertus and Villeneuve, this is a steely, mineral style cuvée that will age beautifully. Lemony, fresh herbs and hints of ripe citrus lead to a firm and taut palate that will gain softness and depth with age.' – Roland Peens (August 2018)

Baudry, Brut-Tradition NV – R 425
'The nose unveils the complexity of aromas with notes of dried fruit like almonds or hazelnuts, as well as stewed yellow fruit. The taste is nothing but softness and delicacy. The effervescent with fine bubbles remains creamy. It is generously attacking then giving in to roundness. The harmony of toasted bread and quince marmalade is just perfect in this ensemble. This full-flavoured Champagne is beautifully structured.’ – Winemaker

Hugues Godmé, Réserve Brut 1er Cru NV – R 525
'This is leesy and aromatic, with floral, white cherry, pastry dough and almond skin flavors set in a lively frame. Bright and balanced, with a zesty finish. Disgorged December 2015.' – Wine Spectator

Copinet Marie, Extra Quality Brut NV – R 490
'An elegant aperitif, with bright acidity and a finely detailed texture paired with pleasing notes of pastry, green pear, citrus and anise.' – Wine Spectator

Gossett-Brabant, Réserve Grand Cru Brut NV – R 525
'Golden colour with a light and regular bubbles. The nose has the typical aromas of the “house style”, pear, anise, butter and chulk. The mouth is powerful. A round wine with body and a perfect richness.' – Winemaker
