Premier Cru Extra Brut Réserve
Our Two Cents
When making this special cuvée, Laureen Baillette found the right balance at 4 g/l which is half her standard dosage. This custom Champagne is an even split between the three major grapes of the region, and 50 percent is a perpetual réserve, which brings beautiful structure and great length in the finish. The blend’s 10 percent chardonnay has been aged in used oak barrels, adding a distinct level of complexity, depth and length of finish to this harmonious blend.
SEE: Clear, luminous, effervescent and unmistakably Premier Cru. Frothy golden bubbles rise in regular streams and form a full bead on the surface.
SMELL: Red apple skin, juicy red currant and doughy brioche followed by a bouquet of white flowers
TASTE: Ripe fruit and white flowers. Delicate effervescence. Beautiful acidity bursts mid-palate offering contrast to the round, rich mouthfeel.
PAIR: Pop this bottle pre-meal as an apéritif or with a bonafide feast starring a roasted ham dressed in fresh herbs.

We thought you’d never ask! Whether you’re choosing Champagne for yourself or a gift for someone else, fatcork celebration specialists have you covered! Need help pairing a bottle from your club allocation for your dinner party? We can help there too! In our online bottle shop, you’ll discover an assortment of beautifully curated bundles and gift sets.

Do I have to be a club member to shop bottles?
No way José. All are welcome to purchase any of our delicious bubbles online or in person at the fatcork cave.
What do I do if my Champagne is corked?
Damp, wet cardboard? That’s not on the tasting note! Cork taint is the worst, but all fatcork Champagnes use natural cork closures, so it does happen on the rare occasion. Please let us know, and will happily replace the bottle. Before you throw it away, snap a photo of the back label and we can refer to the code for reference. Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the order number.
Can I return or exchange my bottles?
We aim to please. Call or email us, so we can talk about what happened and how we can make things right.
