E. Barnaut Grand Brut Réserve
This is the original cuvée, and its reserve wine comes from the batch first made by Edmond Barnaut and replenished every year. The blend is approximately two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay, and represents 65% of the annual production.
Power and richness are the hallmarks of this wine from Barnaut, whose vineyards are in Bouzy. With its high Pinot Noir element, there is acidity as well, but yeast and almonds also show through, yielding a well-balanced wine.
