"Firm and toasty, this tightly knit example features grilled nut and smoke accents that lace the crunchy pear and lemon curd flavors".
Jean-Georges Vongerichten - Chef At The Restaurant Jean Georges New York
"When you speak about the Brut Nature cuvée, you’re invited on a journey into the origins of a champagne. It’s going back to the basics of a timeless and authentic champagne. I remember the first time I tasted this cuvée, it was with a sea urchin salted butter with South American chilli and yuzu zest on toast. An astute pairing! The Brut Nature cuvée transports you to a pleasant emotion. Its sparkling acidity on the palate awakens your taste buds to the pleasures of the gastronomy. For example, you can match it with a warm oyster on a bed of creamed basil and wasabi with crispy potatoes – a dish served in our restaurant in New York. This Brut Nature is also a delight with a jelly of finger limes, crème fraiche, dill and caviar or even a sea bream sashimi with herbs. For me, the Brut Nature cuvée is truly a return to the original purity, the same purity that charms me and which allows for so many pairings where we see authenticity rhyme with simplicity and subtlety of flavours. An unmoving journey towards timelessness!"

"Fresh, well-aged nose. Really quite frothy on the palate, I find. Lots of acidity. Clean and fresh and (just) broad enough to take it."
