Barnaut Grande Reserve Grand Cru NV (3 x 750ml)

 

A blend of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/2 Chardonnay from Bouzy.

"Ripe, creamy, mid-mature nose, elegant and quite stylish, well made base wine, honey and toffee. Smoky Pinot, very pretty, good acid backbone. Up to 5 years. 16 points (Bollinger 15.6, Veuve 15.25, Pol Roger 15.2, and Taittinger 15.2)"
Decanter Magazine

"Here's a champagne for those who want to buy something that will give pleasure to the most discerning drinker (I liked it so much I ignored the bottle of Roederer in the fridge and served it to two professionals who walloped it down) but does not involve crossing the Channel and doing battle with H M Customs."
Jancis Robinson MW OBE, JancisRobinson.com

"Wonderfully chatty nose, fantastic bready hints with apples and spices, pure lemon fruit and fine, delicate length."
17/20, Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com

"Like Bollinger, this is made with around two thirds pinot noir, which gives it a firm structure and undertones of spice, toast and cherry compote. A serious champagne with a sappy uplift - at a bargain price."
Victoria Moore, Daily Telegraph (UK)

"This bottle of the NV Brut Grand Cru Grande Reserve was disgorged in November 2017 with six grams per liter dosage. It's showing well, exhibiting scents of waxy red apples, pastry cream, tangerine and a subtle touch of smoke. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and fleshy but incisive, with brisk acids, good mid-palate depth, a good mousse and a precise finish. This is a classy, Pinot Noir-dominant non-vintage cuvee that will reward aging on cork."
William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (May 2019)

"As the name would suggest, it's clear from the nose that there is a relatively high proportion of reserve stocks in the blend as the nose is clearly mature, offering notes of baked apple, citrus and plenty of aged yeast-inflected nuances. I like the complexity of the rich, muscular and full-bodied flavors that possess the same fine complexity as the nose before terminating in a moderately dry, clean and lightly citrus-inflected finish. This is lovely and while it's not a particularly elegant example, it's hard to beat the complexity for the price point."

"The NV Brut Grande Reserve Grand Cru is soft, open-knit and inviting, all qualities that make it hugely rewarding to drink now. Pear, baked apple, brioche and spice overtones give the wine its racy, inviting personality. Rich and vinous on the palate, yet refreshing, this mid-weight Champagne has a lot to offer."
