Champagne Saint Reol Brut Blanc de Noirs d’Ambonnay Grand Cru Champagne, NV
9.0 stars
15 Oct 2022

d’Ambonnay is a very well-known Grand Cru village in champagne, there are many well-known champagne houses from d’Ambonnay, e.g. Krug, Duval Leroy, Mumm, Piper Heidsieck, Pol Roger, Roederer … etc. Saint-Reol is a cooperative by polling 58 champagne producers with excellent champagne making skills to make their champagnes, thus quality is assured. This is made of 100% Pinot Noir grape varietal. Decanter in 2021 gave a rating of 91/100 with a silver medal award. I popped open and paired it with Hamachi collar, the bouquet instantaneously revealed fruity and fleshy aroma. Body is creamy, along with very fruity character as well, it’s probably a rather straight forward champagne with not much complexity. However, I had a chance to compare it with other non-Grand Cru champagnes, the obvious difference is the softness of the body for Saint-Reol Blanc de Noirs, once you have a sip, you obviously didn’t want to taste the non-Grand Cru ones anymore, as the softness is really appealing, and it stood out clearly amongst the Grand Cru and the non-Grand Cru champagnes.
