BERECHE (2008) BRUT NATURE LES BEAUX REGARDS

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS-"The NV (2008) Brut Nature Chardonnay Les Beaux Regards impresses for its focus vibrancy and cut. Lemon, pastry and white flowers emerge from the glass as this tightly wound, pure Chardonnay shows off its considerable personality. The 2008 is all about minerality and precision. The Beaux Regards is a blend of 2/3rds Ludes and 1/3rd Mareuil-le-Port fruit. The 2008 is the first vintage aged on cork and was disgorged in November 2011. Today, the 2008 comes across as painfully tight and need of further bottle age. Still, I loved it."

2 STARS CHAMPAGNE GUIDE-"This blanc de blancs cuvée combines chardonnay from two different terroirs: two-thirds of it comes from Ludes, while one-third is from vineyards around Mareuil-le-Port, in the Vallée de la Marne. The 2006 was extremely closed upon release, but over the last year it has blossomed nicely, particularly upon being given some post-disgorgement age (this sample was disgorged in September of 2009). Today this has a surprisingly savory aroma on the nose, showing notes of braised meats, toasted nuts and peppery spice along with a creamy, slightly honeyed richness. It’s full of bright fruit on the palate, its sleekly velvety flavors of apricot, peach skins, grapefruit and green apple demonstrating a sappy, textural depth. The finish is long and impeccably balanced, marked by a prominent minerality: serve this in a tulip-shaped wine glass rather than a flute to bring out the full range of aromas and show the wine to its best advantage.
