The oldest cooperative in Champagne, Collet dates back to 1921 and sources many of its grapes from premier and grand cru vineyards. Their NV Brut is a blend of over 100 parcels from across the region, with the addition of 35% reserve wine. It has a fairly typical nose of slightly creamy lemon and apple fruits, leading into a zesty palate with energetic acidity and a lovely pink grapefruit streak which defines the green apple and subtle lemon zest notes. A lean, crisp style that is ideally suited to drinking with food. Long finish.
Champagne Collet Brut is the distinctive cuvee and identity of Maison Collet, harmoniously combining Champagne's three main grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. Light golden-amber color. Toasted brioche aromas with fine citrus notes. Powerful and full-bodied revealing great freshness and amazing length.
Collet Brut is wonderful as an aperitif and ideal when served with a vast array of dishes from oysters to light game dishes such as rabbit terrine and seared duck breast.
Blend: 50% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir
