Champagnes from Alfred Gratien have a lengthy tradition and, disregarding the mass-produced ethos and fashions of modern times, still remain true to that tradition today. This vintage bottling is showing incredibly well and proves that great Champagnes are made for the cellar.

The NV Brut is a wonderfully elegant, classy wine laced with perfumed fruit that carries through to the finish, where smoke and toastiness add further layers of complexity. This mid-weight Champagne is an impeccable wine at the non-vintage level. Disgorged: June, 2008, (not indicated on the label). Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2013. This is an impressive set of wines from Alfred Gratien. The wines are notable for their sheer class and refinement.

A very lean, dry style that focuses on its acidity and green fruits. This makes it a style that needs good bottle aging andmdash; the sample tasted was too young. But for those who like dry, crisp Champagnes, this is beautifully made.

Pale gold. Lively aromas of lemon and orange zest, with deeper pear and melon qualities and a hint of vanilla. Sappy and precise in the mouth, offering citrus flavors that gain flesh and sweetness with air. Finishes with very good clarity and tangy persistence.

Fresh-tasting and creamy, with a hint of oak adding complexity. Apple, peach and grapefruit flavors prevail, with nervy acidity driving the finish. Echoes spice and butter on the finish.
