Wine Spectator:

"Well-balanced and lively, with a fine, creamy mousse and subtle Gala apple, smoke, ginger, honey and lemon meringue flavors. Ends with a lingering, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. 25,000 cases made." –AN

Product Description:

"1930 was a historic turning point for Besserat de Bellefon, which was soon to become legendary. Victor Besserat took up the challenge laid down by the Director of a distinguished Parisian restaurant, the Samaritaine de Luxe, and crafted a delicate and lightly sparkling Champagne as a perfect accompaniment to an entire meal. This marked the birth of a range which is now called the Cuvée des Moines in tribute to the Benedictine monks who first mastered the techniques of fermenting Champagne. This creamy flavoured Champagne, specifically designed for fine dining, was complemented by a rosé version in 1972 to the very great pleasure of all those who appreciate variety in food and wine pairing."
