RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Fantastic rose champagne. Aromas of yeast, frais de bois and stone, all echoed in the flavors. Creamy midpalate, with fine mousse and an active but tiny bead. Everything I love in a champagne.
Very good mousse. Nice, powerful nose with strong minerality. Same goes for the palate, but could stay a bit longer. Nice fruit, and mellow toastiness. Nothing contorversial or experimental, but classic and correct. Drank very well with a selection of goat milk cheeses.
Very nice fine mousse of bubbles. Great red fruit and buiscuity flavors - not too yeasty.
Nice, but for the same price the Rose is better. Still a fine Champagne. A little too acidic and yeasty for me.
Has really nice floral notes and cranberry flavors. - WS Grand Tour 2011
Best champagne I've had for the price point. Not too dry.
First enjoyed this on a first-class transatlantic flight and considered it one of the best I'd been served on a flight. Always raises eyebrows without an introduction. Highly recommended anytime.
External Reviews for Alfred Gratien Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Millésimé
Rich and mellow, with vanilla, peach and candied lemon flavors. There's an underlying chalklike sensation, bright acidity and a long, toffee-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made. Wine Spectator, Nov 30, 2009, Bruce Sanderson
This great classic clearly shows the style of Alfred Gratien. It's a refined blend dominated by fruity Pinot Meunier combined with the elegance of Chardonnay.
Subtle, with savory dried thyme and ground ginger notes playing off of flavors of glazed apple and candied lemon zest, while a streak of smoky mineral and finely wrought acidity and texture push through on the finish. Drink now. - AN Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Maison Alfred Gratien Brut Classique 750ml
