The Brut Nature Cuvée is a grand classic from the Champagne house Alfred Gratien. The blend is dominated by the fruitiness of Pinot Meunier combined with the elegance of Chardonnay. This wine has a beautiful light golden robe, with sparkling and persistent bubbles. The nose is nicely fruity, with emerging notes of citrus evolving into aromas of fresh mango, peach and apricot. On the palate the Brut Nature from Alfred Gratien presents a lovely balance between aromatic force and the freshness of exotic fruit.

Wine Advocate-Parker : The classic NV Brut is based on a blend of Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier fermented and aged in oak for six months, but there is no malolactic fermentation. The recent issue is based on the 2013 vintage and 40% reserve wines from a solera and opens with a clear yet pretty reductive bouquet. Fresh, clear and straight on the palate, this is a refreshing Champagne with a filigreed structure and a dry, stimulating finish. Tasted April 2018.
