Pierre Callot Grand Reserve

6775 185x240

Notes on the bottling disgorged in July 2013 | 12.5%

Lovely fragrance of membrillo quince paste, fresh raw coconut, brioche, and tangy citrus peels, this champagne also scratches that itch for pastry notes without heavy oak. Partial malolactic fermentation calms some of the Champenoise flex and leaves a fresh fragrant apple lift on its round finish. Delicious at every turn.

Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, September 2013

 

“Regularly rewarded at tastings, this 1er Cru cuvée is a blend of reserve wines. After an extended stay in our cellars, this wine is ideal as an aperitif or enjoyed with white meat or fish cooked in a sauce. Made from 100% Chardonnay from 45 year old vines planted to non-pebbly limestone soil. Traditional vinification in vats, with partial malolactic fermentation yields a golden, brilliant color with very fine bubbles. The nose is complex and pleasing with notes of toasted buttered brioche with a hint of quince and bee’s wax. The palate is round and full, well balanced and complex, creamy, with great length, combining freshness and the warmth of spice”
