According to wine writer Peter Liem: "This is one of the finest grower estates in the Grande Vallée de la Marne. Chiquet's wines combine a generous depth of fruit with a pronounced character of place—if you want to know what the wines of the Grande Vallée should feel like, these are an excellent introduction. Chiquet's wines generally show well young, thanks to the forward fruitiness of their Marne terroirs. Yet with their balance and depth they can also age extremely well, even the non-vintage Brut Tradition, as I've seen from several old examples dating all the way back to 1964."
Tasting Notes: Aromas of ripe pear, apricot, peach, and honey, with a subtle strawberry nuance in the background. The palate offers very good intensity, with fresh orchard fruit and spice cake flavors picking up weight with air. Closes on a vibrant, stony note, with very good clarity and length.
“... reveals an inviting bouquet of crisp yellow orchard fruit, fresh peach, honeycomb, citrus oil and warm biscuits. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a classy mousse, a succulent core of fruit and ripe but racy balancing acids. It’s already drinking well.”—Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, 90 Points
