Critic Notes

The NV Brut Tradition is a beautiful entry-level wine graced with an open, exquisite bouquet and layers of warm, radiant fruit. Peaches, pears and hazelnuts linger on the pretty finish. The Brut Tradition is 55% Pinot Noir, 37% Pinot Meunier and 8% Chardonnay, but it is the base vintage - in this case the hot 2003 - that marks the wine quite noticeably. This bottle was disgorged in July 2009. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. Dec 2010, www.robertparker.com

Score: 88-/100Antonio Galloni

Only 5% Chardonnay so very nearly a Blanc de Noir. Toast and Brioche on the nose and fresh in the mouth with clean and crisp acidity. This gives way to full and rich fruit with a gorgeous layered texture - hugely complex and to a degree rarely found in Champagne at this price. F+R

Score: -/FINE+RARE

'Natural', Biodynamic, Organic - is tradition always best?
The first evidence of wine production was in Georgia around 7000BC and domestication of vines occurred around 3000BC. Wine was a natural, simple product: grapes that were pressed and fermented – a true expression of the terroir and the creator’s expertise. But does tradition make better wine? Or is this a romantic notion of turning back the clock to a ...

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tasting
62 samples of 2010 Brunello di Montalcino In late February, just after the Benvenuti Brunello tastings in Montalcino, we held what was probably the most comprehensive tasting of 2010 Brunello di Montalcino in the UK.  These wines have proved immensely popular since their release and we had a golden chance to see what the fuss is all about. In ...
