To create the Brut Réserve Castelnau have put together a blend where the subtlety and complexity of the Pinots are perfectly expressed and where the character of the Chardonnay adds, as if by alchemy, balance and style. The alchemist sought to turn base metal into gold, and when you close your eyes and taste you might think that our Chef de Caves has almost succeeded !
The reserve wines in the blend add maturity and complexity, and this is enhanced by an extended ageing of at least 5 years which is quite exceptional in Champagne.
This refined champagne, perfect both as an aperitif and with fine food has a remarkable freshness on the finish.
Wine Enthusiast 90ptsCrisp and fruity, this mature-tasting wine has a fine toasty element in the background. Ripe and full with a creamy texture and warming aftertaste, it's ready to drink.
