ALFRED GRATIEN BRUT

WINE SPECTATOR 91 POINTS-"Subtle, with savory dried thyme and ground ginger notes playing off of flavors of glazed apple and candied lemon zest, while a streak of smoky mineral and finely wrought acidity and texture push through on the finish. Drink now."

This non dosed Brut (except the reserve component) was all vinified in secondhand barrels, most of which are old, 228-liter barriques purchased from Chablis. The wines stay in barrel for about six months before being blended and bottled: "The idea is not to mark the wines with the wood," says chef de cave Nicolas Jaeger, "but to give them more structure, more finesse and length." This bottling is a blend of 41 percent chardonnay, 32 percent Pinot Noir and 27 percent Meunier, with 20 percent of the total made up of reserve wines.
