"This mouthwatering bubbly layers a finely textured mousse with flavors of green apple, grapefruit zest, star fruit and spice. Lively and very harmonious, with a long, lingering finish."
"The NV Brut Cuvee Grand Cellier possesses gorgeous intensity in its piercing notes of lemon, white flowers and spices. Smoky, floral notes continue to emerge as the wine shows off its class and sheer energy. This is a great showing from the Grand Cellier. The Grand Cellier is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. This release is based on 2008, with reserve wines from 2007 and 2006. The fruit is sourced from Les Hautes Greves and Les Basses Greves, both in Rilly la Montagne. Dosage is 10 grams per liter. Disgorged May 2011."
"The style and quality of this release is quite similar to that reviewed in Issue 28 two years ago. The nose remains very restrained with aromas of green apple, freshly baked brioche and citrus dissolves into intense, pure and driving flavors that possess a wonderfully broad panoply of flavors that are gorgeously persistent. This is one of those rare Champagnes that can really have excellent flavor authority yet deliver it by dancing across the palate. While this doesn't seem to be quite at the level of the last release, it's very close."
