External Reviews for Charles Ellner Brut Champagne Rose Champagne Blend Wine
A baked apple pie flavor - with all the ripe apple, pastry crust, nutmeg, anise and cinnamon notes - runs through this well-meshed Champagne, which is enlivened by fresh, almost lightly chalky acidity and good cut over-all, with a smoky finish. Drink now through 2016.
Riddling, or “remuage” as the French call it, is the process of turning champagne bottles in the cellar. Doing so not only ensures proper secondary fermentation but also slowly sifts the lees (dead yeast) towards the bottles neck to be expelled later on (as is necessary in the méthode Champenoise). Riddling is where Charles Ellner began his work with champagne. His house, in turn, has crafted this very fine product. It is 40% Pinot Noir and 60% Chardonnay and has notes of spice, tropical fruit, honey and a touch of butter on the palate. Not only will you reward yourself with this wonderful champagne but you will also honor those who, like Charles Ellner, spent hours meticulously turning these bottles for your future enjoyment. Food pairing: Asian, spicy foods, seafood, poultry, pasta Flavor type: semi-dry Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp
An opulent Champagne, with mushroom, toast and honey aromas and flavors. Appealing, this draws you in with its lush texture and supple mousse. Fine length, with a long vanilla- and honey-tinged aftertaste. Drink now.
The NV Brut Cuvee de Reserve is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir from the 2002 and 2003 vintages. The wine shows lovely freshness and minerality in a focused style, with an energetic finish.
The NV Brut Cuvee de Reserve is a tasty, entry-level Champagne. Expressive, well-delineated aromatics lead to a focused core of fruit as this fresh, vibrant wine opens up in the glass. This shows lovely freshness married to the weight that comes from the Pinot, in an engaging, highly pleasing style. This is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Ellner. The Cuvee de Reserve is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir from the 2004 and 2003 harvests. Dosage was 10 grams per liter. This is Lot LC1043025XEL035, disgorged June, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2015.
The NV Brut Rose is a big powerful wine loaded with fruit. This is a generous large-scaled style although some rough edges remain. The NV Rose is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. This is Lot LR1074013XRO136. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014. This is a solid set of wines from Ellner. The straight NV wines are delicious... --Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
