Thierry Fournier Cuvee Speciale Versus Brut Reserve!
Both 9.25 stars
18 Apr 2020
Thierry Fournier Cuvee Speciale is a blend of 50% Meunier and 50% Chardonnay from Thierry Fournier, of which I was very eager to try after having the fantastic Brut Reserve. However, I must confess the Brut Reserve being much more attractive to me with the intensity of the fruits, however, it losses out to the Cuvee Speciale, as the latter is actually much more feminine than the more mascular Brut Reserve!
I would say the Brut Reserve is also a bit rugged, while the Cuvee Speciale added a touch of elegance and finesse.The content was definitely much more superb than supermarket acquired champagnes, and even those big names like Moet & Chandon or Veuve Cliquot. The mousse on the palette was very attractive, with a soft and creamy bubbles caressing the palette before dissipating away quickly.
