Reviews and Ratings

"2004 was amongst the coolest of seasons on record over the past 20 years. This luxurious, late-disgorged M├ęthode Classique Brut Reserve LD is youthful yet rich, displaying tell-tale coloration from its Pinot Noir component, along with extremely fine bubbles, a delicate mousse and consistent effervescence. Classic toasty aromas mingle with a tremendously complex and saturated nose of sweet clove bud, honey, key lime and apple cobbler. A striking purity of fruit and minerality unveil young green apple and slate notes on the palate. A fascinating paradox between the crisp, bright and refreshing character and a dense, concentrated mouthfeel springs from extremely low cropping levels and great passion, both in the vineyard and the winery. This sparkling wine possesses all the prerequisites to gracefully stand the test of time."

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
