Roger Brun Réserve Grand Cru

$99.00
Complexity and mouth filling flavour! A blend of 85% pinot an 15% Chardonnay from the exceptional ‘Ay’ Grand Cru sub region of Champagne. There toasty brioche, oyster-shell, red apple and red apple skin, grapefruit and a fantastic mouthfeel. Complex and persistent, perhaps because 50% of the blend comprises reserve wine from exceptional vintages. This is a truly exceptional Champagne.
