About This Wine

Balance is the name of the game with the Grand Reserve.

That balance begins with the three wines used to make this champagne. Made up of (almost) equal parts Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. It gets much of its body from the Pinot Noir, an easy finesse from the Chardonnay, and a variety of fruit flavors from the Pinot Meunier.

If you haven’t heard of Pinot Meunier, you’re not alone. The grape is mostly used in champagne production to help balance out Pinot Noir and Chardonnay by adding fresh fruit notes to both the nose and the flavor. Many champagnes that are made using the grape are meant to be drunk young to take full advantage of what it brings to the table.

The balance of this champagne is aided by the reserve wines that make up 50% of its composition. The added maturity blends perfectly with the younger wines to create a champagne that is perfect for any occasion. It will be sure to delight with its flavors of peach, brioche and cured lemon.

    A nice, fresh Champagne. Not the most complex set of flavors, but quite enjoyable.
