Jean Baillette-Prudhomme Cuvée Brut Réserve Premier Cru
This Brut Réserve Cuvée might be Laureen Baillette's entry-level Champagne but it certainly doesn't taste entry-level as it is blended with 50% reserve wine from the early 2000 vintages. This gives the Brut Réserve over 3 years of age on its lees and provides for wonderful complexity. It is fresh and bright with delightful effervescence and acidity, but is also has some serious depth and a beautiful lingering finish. The perfect aperitif!
