Winemaker Notes

This clear and elegant champagne is the symbol of Collet's demand for excellence. Its balance and freshness make it perfect to drink on any occasion. Bright crystal-like appearance displaying a fine and elongated bead. Powerful, fruit driven nose with floral and mineral overtones derived from the Chardonnay component. High noted to start with subtle richness and distinguished mid-palate texture leading to a long and fresh finish.

Collet Brut Art Deco suits itself to aperitifs and refined gourmet occasions, pairing greatly with seafood, Mediterranean and Japanese dishes.

Blend: 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
This is clean-cut and linear, lightly chalky in texture, with a balanced palate of poached apple, black raspberry, biscuit and candied lemon zest. Fresh.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Aged four years before disgorgement, this ripe and generously soft wine has both mature toasty flavors and great acidity. Rich in apricot as well as white fruit flavors, it is well balanced, with layers of acidity smoothed by the yeasty aftertaste. Editors' Choice.

Since 1921, the house of Collet has been creating Champagnes of character with a view to satisfy connoisseurs who are looking for authenticity, elegance and a great finesse. Located in Ay, at the heart of the Champagne region, Collet's vineyards are based mainly on Premier and Grand crus that reflect the diversity of the champagne regions terroirs. Champagne Collet is a high gastronomy wine. Each cuvee was developed to be perfectly associated with all occasions, from the apertif to the finest dish.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
