Besserat de Bellefon "Cuvee des Moines" Brut Champagne

SKU #1208753 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tightly knit and racy, this is mouthwatering and harmonious, showing flavors of black currant, smoked almond, candied lemon zest, honey and chalk. Vibrant and hard to stop sipping, with a firm, smoky finish. Disgorged November 2014. Drink now through 2020. Inner quote mark (10/2015)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Vivid yellow. Ripe and pungent on the nose, displaying buttered toast and poached pear aromas and a hint of candied ginger. Pliant and spicy in the mouth, with gently sweet pear and yellow apple flavors complemented by a touch of brioche. Finishes on a spicy note, with good grip and a touch of back-end heat. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This wine’s green apple and mineral scents have an oxidative tone, bringing to mind Fino Sherry. It’s rich and smoky, solidly built, balanced by touches of bitterness. For smoked salmon and crème fraîche. Inner quote mark (12/2013)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This soft and fruity wine is attractively balanced and fresh. Lively acidity brings out a bright texture and crisp aftertaste. This bottling, disgorged in April 2013 (bravo Besserat de Bellefon for indicating this), is now at the right moment to drink. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

K&L Notes

The Champagnes of Besserat de Bellefon are unique in that they are made at only 4.5 atmospheres of pressure across the range rather than the standard 6. These Champagnes are made specifically to be paired with food, and this Brut would make a fine partner from everything from Charcuterie to oysters. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)
