The NV Brut Grand Cru Selection sparkles on the palate with beautifully articulated lime peel, chalk, flowers and mint in a polished, refined style. This linear, focused Champagne offers exceptional length and a crisp, refreshing finish that makes it impossible to resist a second taste. The NV Brut Grand Cru Selection is Chardonnay from Avize, Cramant and Oger. Disgorged: Summer, 2009, (not indicated on the label). Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.
Le Brun Servenay is a small, family-run domaine located in Avize, but with vineyards throughout the Cote des Blancs, namely Cramant and Oger, as well as in and around Mancy. At their best, the wines offer an attractive combination of breadth and volume, but with the telltale minerality of the Cote des Blancs. Score: 91 points -- Wine Advocate, Dec 2009
