Professional Wine Reviews for Alfred Gratien Brut Classique NV

Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
Rich and mouthwatering, this feels like raw silk on the palate, offering exotic hints of toasted coconut and lime blossom that enrich the crushed white cherry, candied blood orange and brioche flavors. Offers a lingering, mineral-laced finish. Disgorged October 2018. Drink now through 2023. 15,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
Rated 90 by Wine Enthusiast
As with all this producer's wines, the first fermentation iof this bottling was in wood, adding richness and smoothing out the fruit to give a warm, round character. The acidity is still tight and crisp, with citrus and apple flavors shot through with minerality. Drink now.

Winery Alfred Gratien

Region: Champagne

The region of Champagne in the north-easterly part of France has, for hundreds of years, been known for the production of high quality, elegant and characterful sparkling white wines. Champagne wines continue to dominate the market for sparkling wines, and are the envy of many countries, with plenty of producers attempting to emulate their unique practices. The chalky, mineral-rich soils of this high altitude region are ideal for growing the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Petit Meunier varietal grapevines which cover the region and are usually blended together in the production of Champagne wine. The climate of Champagne is far cooler than other famous wine regions in France, but the wineries which are found all over the area have generations of expertise, and have no problems in producing vast quantities of their famous produce for the world market.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
