R.H. Coutier, Tradition, Brut Champagne, NV (France)
Wine Spectator: 92 Points: "The firm acidity is finely meshed in this seamless Champagne, with a rich note of chalky minerality underscoring the creamy palate's flavors of chopped almond, black currant, fleur de sel and candied lemon zest. Disgorged October 2014. Drink now through 2020."
Wine Advocate: 90 Points:. The NV Brut Grand Cru Tradition is a pretty, immediate Champagne with lovely roundness. Nothing in particular stands out, just the wine’s balance and overall sense of proportion. A soft, caressing finish rounds things out in style. This release is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from the 2008 vintage, with the addition of reserve wines. Disgorged January 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
