SKU #1043483 92 points Wine Spectator

 A focused Champagne, offering tightly wound flavors of toast, honeyed apple, lemon peel, white pepper and ginger. Smoky, with sophisticated polish and a fresh, lightly floral finish. Drink now through 2021.  (12/ 2010)

 The style of this creamy wine seems to have become drier, giving a steely tight character to go with the apple and citrus flavors. The result is attractive, very fresh, ready to drink.  (12/ 2011)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Yellow-gold. A fruity, aromatic bouquet evokes ripe pear, melon and tangerine, with vanilla and floral notes adding complexity. Plush honeydew and orchard fruit flavors are lifted by gentle acidity and show a subtle spiciness. Notes of vanilla and floral honey linger on a long, juicy finish. Not the most complex Champagne but I find it extremely easy to drink and would serve it with spicy Thai seafood dishes.  (12/ 2010)

K&L Notes

The Demoiselle Tête du Cuvée Brut Champagne is composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir and goes through primary fermentation in 100% stainless steel. It completes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and is then bottled and aged for three years on the lees. The Champagne is quite golden in color, with a touch of green from the high Chardonnay content and has a decadent, generous nose that the Pinot dominates. Flavors of buttered toast, apples and even a bit of chanterelle mushroom unfold on the complex palate. This is very vinous, potent Champagne with quite a bit of length.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
