BERECHE 06 EXTRA BRUT RESERVE LA CRAN 1.5LITER

2 1/2 STARS CHAMPAGNGUIDE.NET-"Made of equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all from the village of Ludes, this is elegant and suave, its flavors of apricot, red cherry and citrus underlined by a stony, savory minerality. It's a step up from the previous two releases, feeling finer in tone than the 2005 and more complex and more harmonious than the 2004, and its finish is particularly impressive, showing a subtle nuance and outstanding length. Last tasted: 2/13."
ANTONIO GALONI 92 POINTS-"The NV (2006) Extra Brut Le Cran is one of the creamier, more oxidative wines of the range, largely because of the six years it spent on its lees. Dried pears, crushed flowers, spices, licorice and almonds meld together gracefully in this effortless, polished Champagne. The 2006 Le Cran is very much a wine of textural volume and breadth. Relative to the other wines in the range, the 2006 Le Cran feels a bit heavy. My sense is that today's wines are a bit more polished. The 2006 is equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot. This bottle was disgorged in January 2013. Dosage was 2 grams per liter."
