Edmond Barnaut Grand Cru Grande Reserve Brut Pinot Noir Chardonnay Champagne Grand Cru

Member Review by PSeconde:

The flagship of Champagne Barnaut is the Grande Réserve – a blend of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay. Grande Réserve still bears the same name and the same colour label as when Edmond Barnaut himself first produced it back in the 1800s. In fact were he to drink the current Grande Réserve today Edmond might even recognise it Why? Well because a ‘solera’ system is used to produce this and indeed several of the Barnaut champagnes what this means is that each year about half of the wine produced is set aside and kept to be used in the following year’s blend with wines from the current year. The same process is followed every year so there is always a small fraction of extremely old wine in each year’s blend. So who knows? Philippe Secondé reckons you might even find half a bubble of wine dating all the way back to 1874 Grand Réserve is a champagne for just about any time of day from tea-time till dawn and certainly a champagne that you can enjoy just as much with foods, such as grilled fish and white meats, as you can as an aperitif. The Pinot Noir brings body and weight to this champagne whilst the Chardonnay brings freshness and ageing potential. It’s not surprising therefore that the average length of ageing is 5 years Grande Réserve has a beautiful golden colour, intense aromas of stewed apples, dried fruits and red fruits too, whilst in the mouth it’s full-flavoured and direct with a lovely long finish
