Pierre Brigandat Champagne Brut Tradition
Strange as it may sound, this 'Brut Tradition' is an ‘assemblage’ of 100% Pinot Noir cuvees. 25% is from what Bertrand Brigandat calls the 'cuvee reserve', wine from previous vintages set aside for blending purposes. While so much Champagne these days tastes of under-ripe fruit and yeast, this 'blanc de Noir' is a real wine, with finesse and elegance. The roundness of the Pinot fruit is balanced with a bright acidity, and the soft pearl of the bubbles brings up aromas fresh and floral.
