Winemaker's Notes:

Straw yellow in color. This Champagne has an expressive, delicate, fresh, intense bouquet of black grapes, fruit and biscuits. The palate is full-bodied, elegant and refreshing, with very fine bubbles and lingering beads. The Brut Reserve has an outstanding complexity of flavors.
My Notes:

About Alfred Gratien:

If the exception in the Champagne region bears a name it is most certainly that of Alfred Gratien.

At Alfred Gratien’s, craftsmanship is worshipped, and it is not by chance that the house is one of the last to respect the traditions of the champagne business, while still adapting to progress.

And the willingness of the directors to remain faithful to the philosophy of the founder, Alfred Gratien, can be seen at each stage in the production of these wines of distinction. Rigorously selected grapes, traditional vinification, purposefully limited quantities and respect for the " terroir " make Alfred Gratien really unique.
