Nicolas Maillart NICOLAS MAILLART CHAMPAGNE1ER CRU BRUT PLATINE NV
Wine EnthusiastWith vines on the Montagne de Reims, this producer has a good line in Pinot Noir, which forms 85% of the blend. The wine is rich while well balanced and ripe. Now with just the right amount of bottle aging, it is full in the mouth, showing attractive apple and ripe pear flavors. The aftertaste is soft and fresh.
Wine SpectatorRefined and creamy, with focused notes of crushed white cherry, pastry cream, fleur de sel and orchard blossom. Mouthwatering acidity and accents of grated ginger and lemon zest hold sway on the finish. Elegant. Disgorged January 2015. Drink now through 2020. 100 cases imported.
