Critic Review

Decanter Magazine: 87Pts

"A rich and developed palate, marrying flavours of braeburn apples, white chocolate and ginger biscuit."
Simon Field MW, Peter Liem, David Vareille

JancisRobinson.com: 16.5Pts

"A little more yeasty than the straight Collet Brut, as you might expect from the longer time on the lees. Biscuity richness on the palate, well balanced by the fresh acidity. Has both fruit and finesse. Persistent."
Julia Harding MW

About the Producer

Champagne Collet with its elegant Art Deco packaging is evocative of the Belle Epoque era from when it was established. It is the oldest cooperative in Champagne, dating back to 1921. Since its inception, Collet has been creating Champagnes of character with authenticity, elegance and great finesse. Located in Aÿ, in the heart of the Champagne region, Collet represents some of the finest growers and mainly sources from vineyards which are based on Premiers and Grands Crus sites. Each cuvée reflects the diversity of the region’s terroirs and has been masterfully blended to suit gastronomic cuisine.

Vineyard and Winery

This is an exceptional blend of seven Grands Crus and 13 Premiers Crus. The Chardonnay, predominantly from the commune of Vertus, contributes freshness and citrus notes. The Premier Cru of Villers-Marmery contributes the mineral dimension of the limestone terroir along with smoky touches. The Pinot Noir imparts a richness and power thanks to historic Crus such as Ay, Hautvillers and Avenay Val d'Or blended with Crus from Rilly la Montagne. The Pinot Meunier from Villedommange completes the blend imparting a roundness and suppleness.

This cuvée was bottle aged for a minimum of four years in the historic limestone cellars which are centuries old.
