About

95

"Serious opulence and finesse come from this wine. A perfect example of Grower Champagne with a complete finish. Fulsome color and big-boned, this is impressive, the 6 g/l of residual sugar finely knit into a texture of ripe, red-berried fruit and self-evident expertise. Ethereal poise, with just a hint of spice. Immediately vital on the palate. Very chewy and demanding, serious but exciting. Citrus fruit with complexity.

When Nicolas Maillart took over his family's estate in 2003, he overhauled the entire operation in both the vineyards and cellars, eliminating chemical pesticides and herbicides, ploughing his vines, and installing a new press and other vinification equipment. Since then, he has been making refined, richly textured Champagnes such as the Platine non-vintage Brut, a blend based heavily on Pinot Noir. It's high percentage of Reserve wine contributes to its complexity, and a portion of oak-fermented wine increases its breadth and dimension."
