Alfred Gratien (France) NV Brut Champagne

93 Points - Wine Spectator

Champagne Alfred Gratien Brut is the house's signature product: A harmonious smooth and complex Champagne that is balanced enough to accompany nearly every course.

Initially complex on the nose. It combines the freshness of white fruit (pear), the maturity of spice (reserve wines, thyme, bay) and the signature maturation in cellars with yeasty aromas (bread, biscuit). The oak is subtle rather than obtrusive.

On the palate the wine has a beautiful base of acidity, and is wonderfully lively from the attack right through to the finish. This is coupled with the wine’s minerality (thanks to the quality of the original juice), revealed by the time spent in barrel. This is balanced by the elegant, fluid vinosity, as well as delicate viscosity. Silky sparkle.

The finish is very clean, lingering (8 to 9 seconds) and mineral (saline and chalky).
