Bubbly Blind Tasting Winner

We had never done a blind Champagne tasting before, and to “celebrate” my return from surgery, my group wanted to do it with some “sparkle”. We lined up some well-regarded bubblies, among them:
The winner – Pierre Morlet “Grande Reserve” Champagne

FYI: Pierre Morlet is the father of Luc Morlet, Napa winemaker extraordinaire!

The Grande Réserve blend is modeled after the classic base of the Cuvée Suivie, also representing all of the Morlet familyʼs terroirs of Premiers Crus Avenay-Val-dʼOr, Bisseuil and Mutigny and of Grand Cru Aÿ. Partially fermented in French oak “Demi-Muids” barrels – a rarity in Champagne – the Grande Réserve also aged one additional year in their caves. More mature flavors and aromas characterized the Grande Réserve which has built the Pierre Morlet reputation. Amazing perfumed aroma (this wine is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay) jumps out of the glass on impact. Very elegant, crisp fruit dances on the palate and lingers on the gorgeously long finish.
