"The NV Brut is an easy-going, attractive wine with good definition in its aromas and flavors. The wine offers reasonable length even if suggestions of greenness clamp down on the finish. Disgorged: June, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011."

The problem with non-vintage dated bubblies is shown here in spades. We have no idea how old this wine is and whether it may have been more enjoyable at an earlier age. But, whatever its years number, the wine itself is light, steely and dry with bubbles that fade faster than they should.

Love this champagne-our favorite next to Dom-does not have the chardonnay overtone.Light and smooth taste that refreshes and whispers.It adjusts the mind to the pleasures of life.

This value champagne, a medium straw hue, has a crisp apple frame with toasty notes and a fine nutty layer. The mousse is, perhaps, less fine and creamy than others, but more refined mousee commands a higher price point.
It is very enjoyable for occasions. We drank it twice: New Year's Eve toasting for 2002 and recently (2005) we enjoyed it with breaded, broiled sea scallops, snap peas and fresh baguette soaking up a single-orchard extra-virgin olive oil from the Tuscan coast. It is a fine match to many meals!

This house continues to send solid Champagne from France with bright apple fruit with minerals and hazelnuts, complete with delicate toastiness. Excellent price/quality.

This beautiful premier cru Champagne comes from a cooperative of growers. It has ripe nearly tropical style fruit and toasty yeasty fruit. Excellent stuff for under $30!!

At this price point there are better choices, but this is a perfectly nice brut.

Good toastiness, but large-ish bubbles.
