Expert Reviews
92/100
“Disgorged in March 2018, the latest installment of Rodez’s NV Brut Cuvée des Grand Vintages unfurls in the glass with a rich bouquet of buttered yellow orchard fruit, wheat toast, peach and honeycomb that’s framed by a touch of oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a frothy mousse, a generous core of ripe but tangy fruit, brisk acids, chewy structure and a long, lingering finish. This is a powerful but integrated wine that exemplifies the Rodez style.”
