Notes from the Winemaker:

Cuvee Intense is an extremely harmonious blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes from the best hillsides of the Champagne region.

The use of reserve and oak-aged wines in the blend, as well as an ageing period of at least two and a half years in cellars, enable the dosage to be reduced to around 5g/l. Extremely well balanced and wonderfully fruity, this wine is equally enjoyable as an aperitif or served with fish or white meat dishes.

Ratings & Reviews
91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Lightly floral and fresh, with a firm backbone of acidity and a fine-grained texture structuring the tightly knit flavors of crunchy white peach, pear, pickled ginger and biscuit. Drink now through 2019. 15,000 cases made." – AN (March 31, 2014)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(40% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir and 30% pinot meunier; L13 105 109 25 10): Bright gold. Musky pear and yellow plum on deeply scented nose, with a smoky nuance in the background. Chewy and broad but dry, offering bitter pear skin, pit fruit and quinine flavors and a touch of nuttiness. Sweet butter and floral notes linger on the finish, which features subtle chamomile and peach pit qualities. On the rich and weighty side, but with surprising vivacity on the dry, mineral-driven finish." -Josh Raynolds (Dec 13)

89 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A soft structure lends roundness to the peach, vanilla pastry and honey flavors. Ripe and creamy, with a smooth, mouthfilling finish. Drink now" -BS (Web Only - 2009)

88 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The NV Brut Cuvee Intense bursts onto the palate with layers of rich tropical fruit, French oak, licorice, sweet spices and honey. This powerful, intense wine impresses for its voluptuous, open personality. This is Lot # L.911.282 100/0001763. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015." -Antonio Galloni (Nov 2011)
