Tim’s Tasting Notes

94

NV Bertrand de Bessac, Cuvée du Marquis Brut, Champagne

£29.99 down to £24.49, 12%, Waitrose

Tasted at: Waitrose Autumn Tasting

A blend of 60% Pinot Noir from the Aube and 40% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, this has a hefty proportion of toasty reserve wine to add to the ripe fruit from the 2009 vintage. The result is a delicious fizz with real complexity, power and depth as well as the backbone to age.
