Champagne Pierre Bertrand Brut Premier Cru NV - July 2017 Decanter review

 

Decanter review - individual reviewers' comments

 

This is quite some Champagne and remarkable for the price. The varietal mix is equal thirds of the classic trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Grapes are grown only on vineyards of Premier Cru villages (you'd easily clear £30 a bottle for this privilege normally) on the Coteaux de Cumières and Hautvillers in the Marne Valley, yielding great intensity and concentration.

 

One expects exhilarating acidity and and citrus zing in almost any Champagne - this does these in spades - but what makes it really stand out are both the ripeness of fruit flavours and the delicate florality of the nose. Pierre Bertrand see that fruitiness as “damson and pear” while we at Exel thought more “peach and nectarine”; either way, this is one seriously fruity mouthful. Florally, the makers go with “hawthorn flower” and we are not botanically inclined to disagree. At 7g/l of dosage/residual sugar, this is a drier Brut, but the fruit ripeness adds an exciting extra sensation of sweetness. Finally, Pierre Bertrand are rightly proud of their mousse onctueuse – smooth mousse – and we concur: it makes for a truly delicious Champagne experience.

Tiefenbrunner Pinot Nero 'Turmhoff' DOC 2013 (1x 75cl)

Ruby red with a deep garnet sheen, this wine has a delicate bouquet of blackberries, raspberries and cherries. It is smooth and fullbodied, showing balance and elegance on the palate, and has both youthful force and pedigree. An excellent accompaniment to rabbit.

Bodegas Escudero Becquer Blanco 2012 (1x 75cl)

Pale yellow with greenish tones. The aroma is intense with a frutal predominance and spicy notes of the barrique. On the palate it is rich in nuances with an adequate acidity and balance. An extraordinary white wine elaborated in surprisingly fashion for you to enjoy in time.
