The magnificent, deep robe is delicately effervescent, with rising vertical columns of tiny, elegant bubbles that are reminiscent of lace. The initial nose has discreet yet rich aromas of ladyfinger biscuit, grapefruit, orange peel and almond. These are followed by a more exotic note of passion fruit, pineapple, lime, silver ragwort and seaweed. Later still, the tantalizing fragrance of brioche emerges. This is a complex, highly original set of aromas. The attack on the palate is delicate and develops gently. The bubbles seem to melt within the body of the wine, which is robust, and supported by the sugar content attains a comfortingly creamy texture that is particularly enjoyable, almost reminiscent of umami. Throughout the tasting, the acidity heightens, culminating in the finish, which is very long (over 10 seconds) and delivers a burst of intense flavors: acidity, sweetness and salinity. It closes with a chalky minerality, with aromas of honey and brioche lingering on the palate.

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - " Disgorged in July 2019, Gratien's 2013 Brut Cuvée Paradis opens in the glass with youthfully reserved aromas of citrus oil, fresh bread and crisp green orchard fruit. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with lively acids and a pillowy mousse, it's a bright, nicely balanced wine that should take on additional complexity with a bit of bottle age."
