Sparkling wine. Champagne, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The current bottling in the market of Herbert Beaufort “les Facettes” non-vintage Brut Réserve was disgorged in June of 2018. The cépages of this cuvée is seventy percent pinot noir and thirty percent chardonnay, with the vins clairs fermented and raised in stainless steel (without going through malo). I do not have exact dosage levels, but it is close to Extra Brut for certain. The wine offers up a bright bouquet of apple, bread dough, lovely, chalky minerality, dried flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and still youthfully structured, with a good core and fine mineral drive, elegant mousse and a long, promising finish. This is easy to drink today, but it is still a puppy and will repay at least a few years in the cellar." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #81 (May/June 2019)
