THE MERCHANT'S MARK
93+ / 100
Wow! These are big-time bubbles. The Premier Cru fruit of Lacourte Godbillon really leaves its mark in this "Grower Champagne." There is no bulk-fruit here. White peach, crisp apple, stone fruit, bright acidity, and endless bubbles that dance on the palate. Blanched almond, baked brioche and mouth-filling brambly fruit. You will be hard-pressed to find a better Champagne for under $50...it will be impossible to find a better Premier Cru Champagne for $38!
THE WINE ADVOCATE
91 / 100
"The NV Brut Premier Cru Terroirs d'Ecueil is a blend of 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay, all fermented in stainless steel...The Terroirs d'Ecueil offers a very clear, pure, fresh and fruity nose and palate. It is a very filigreed, rather light and finessed yet intense and chalky Champagne with good tension, grip and lingering salinity. Straight yet fine and complex."
