The much loved Bérêche Brut Reserve is back! The previous iteration sold out early in the 2014 holiday season and we are downright giddy to stock this newly arrived instant classic, a 2/3rds blend of the 2012 vintage (equal parts pinot noir, chardonnay, and meunier) and 1/3rd reserve wine (pinot noir dominated). Disgorged in October 2014 and immaculately balanced at 7 grams of dosage, this is a nod to an era of bygone elegance.
Golden in faded and burnished tones with amber-pinkish edges, one could be forgiven for buying 2 bottles: one to enjoy immediately and one to marvel at in a coupe or lyre-shaped decanter. Immediately upon uncorking, there are fleeting aromas of fresh raspberries and fresh mint, followed by cinnamon, butterscotch, hazelnut, and wheat biscuits. The palate is rich and balanced for days with hints of lemon/lime zest, raspberries, and chocolate that crescendo to a biscuity finale. As an aperitif it’s a showstopper and paired with food, one’s thoughts turn to roasted poultry or game and their drippings! David Salinas
