Leclerc Briant Brut Réserve Champagne NV

This is not a label I have previously seen, but it is of a very high quality.  It's a red grape dominant Champagne, with 40% pinot noir, 40% pinot meunier and the balance chardonnay.  It has finely chiselled aromas of brioche, plenty of bread and bakery yeast.  The palate is dry with an austere and fresh impression and medium-long length on the finish.  This is easy to recommend.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: N/A. Price: $90. Source: Sample.
