20% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Meunier. The base vintage of the current disgorgement of the Hurè Fréres Brut Reserve L'Invitation is 2013, with the balance being made up of 40% reserve wines. The nose offers aromas of baked apple, brioche, wild strawberry, orange oil, white flowers, and ginger. On the broad, medium-bodied palate there is a fine tension between the ripe red fruit, citrus peel, frisky acidity, and a fairly serious core of stony minerality. This develops nicely in the glass displaying a frothy mousse and coltish, energetic fruit initially, with the earthy Montagne de Reims character emerging with air. This is a fine Champagne to accompany charcuterie, sushi, or smoked fish. -John McIlwain
Based in Ludes on the northern slope of the Montagne de Reims, this producer's nonvintage Brut is cool, crisp and dry. Fruity with attractive apple and white stone fruit flavors, it boasts taut, citrusy acidity and can be drunk now. Roger Voss 90 pt Wine Enthusiast
