Jean Milan Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne NV

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A small, family-owned estate in the grand cru village of Oger, Jean Milan adheres firmly to traditional methods, including pressing in a Coquard basket press and riddling by hand. The scent is chalky, with the intensity of a young wine. The texture is firm, with a white fruit flavor that bristles from the acidity. It’s mouthwatering, with a little taste of smoke, for grilled abalone.

Coiled like a spring, this Champagne’s pear, floral and bread dough notes show depth and length, and there’s richness to balance the firm structure. Drink now through 2002.

Generous and creamy — a masterpiece of a wine.

The lemon and chalk notes are offset by vanilla and honey in this racy Champagne. Dry in style, this needs food, or a little time, yet it leaves a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2009 through 2011.

Vigorous and firm, this is tightly wound, exhibiting an array of citrus, floral and mineral notes. It’s a little compact now, but the finish lingers, so give it a few months to open up. Drink now through 2005.

The honey, hazelnut and citrus notes seemingly float on the creamy texture in this appealing Champagne. Starts out more intensely than it finishes, but ends with a mineral firmness. Drink now through 2010.

The cool, crystalline structure of this wine holds all its heady, intense fruit within a sharp delineation. Pear skin, pineapple and tropical fruit flavors snap to the fresh, bright lines, smooth and brisk at once. The lime and cream finish strikes the right balance for tempura shrimp.
